Joshua Hammerman & Mara Aisenberg Hammerman

We were counselors in the same edah together and by the end of staff week, we were an “item.” We met under the tree by bunk 32, the staff bunk.

Coincidentally, we also went to the same college, but she was just entering her freshman year at the time we met. The intensity of Ramah life both served to foster and vigorously test our relationship during our three years together at the camp.

Despite the challenges that we had to confront, and to some degree because of them, our memories of Ramah are very positive.
