Many years ago Roberta Wall’s Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hanh encouraged her to find the mindfulness in her root Jewish tradition. Now, drawing on two decades of immersion in Jewish learning and practices in the US and Israel, Roberta publishes Torah at the Intersection, a weekly blog integrating the teachings of Buddhism, Judaism and Nonviolent Communication (NVC). For over 20 years she has been offering Jewish Mindfulness retreats and practices and Nonviolent Communication Mindfulness practices in Jewish, Buddhist and other communities, schools, war zones, leadership trainings and organizations globally. She has shared Nonviolent Communication in Palestine and Israel for over ten years and continues to support the Nonviolent Communication and peacemaker movements there.
Roberta currently lives in New York City where she is part of a team of NVC trainers introducing NVC to formerly incarcerated community members through a reentry program. She is a retired civil rights lawyer.
