From the Anne Frank Museum to numerous synagogues, Georgia’s 52nd House District (Sandy Springs) is a center of local Jewish life. We deserve a leader who champions it accordingly. As a proud Jewish woman and community advocate, I believe that leader is Shea Roberts.
First and foremost, Shea is a staunch supporter of Israel, and equally strong opponent of efforts to sanction it. Our country’s bipartisan consensus in favor of Israel has allowed Israel to thrive in a hostile world, and electing pro-Israel Democrats like Shea Roberts is crucial for maintaining it.
Second, Shea is not just a champion of Jewish life but is also a participant. I’ve come to know Shea over the years and have seen her attend many community programs like the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival. Most recently she walked at the National Council of Jewish Women’s event marking the end of shiva for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Shea has also attended community solidarity rallies after anti-Semitic attacks such as the Tree of Life massacre and the Monsey stabbings.
When it comes time to again confront the specter of anti-Semitism (be it on the far-left or the far-right), Shea will be there for us.
