PJ and Avi first met on Ramah Seminar in the summer of 2003. Avi had been a lifelong camper at Ramah California while PJ had grown up at Ramah Berkshires.
Ramah couples celebrate simchas every year and we would love to celebrate you! Ramah marriages can be defined in many ways; whether you met your spouse at camp, or simply married another Ramahnik from a different camp, your Ramah matrimony is something special! There are more than six decades worth of wonderful stories. To have your Ramah marriage listed on our website please submit your story.
Sarah and Ben actually met in 2004, when they were both campers but weren’t really friends until they re-met on Tzevet Nitzanim in 2009.
In 2007, Adi Segal returned to the camp as a counselor. Not long after, Danielle Schindler followed suit. And in the summer of 2009, with many other counselors out sick or on vacation, the two bonded over an unenviable task — entertaining 85 jumpy, excitable 11-year-olds.
Paula first went to Berkshires as a JC in 2008 before going to Washington University in St. Louis, where she met Jeremy.
Joshua and Rebecca were introduced in 2003 by a mutual friend who Joshua knew from Berkshires and who Becky met through Ramah’s annual Weinstein training program.
Marc Metson and Talia Gottlieb met in 2005 and were married in 2007.
Josh Skolnick and Ilana Ellenberg met in 2006 and were married in 2012.
We did not actually meet on a Ramah program, we met on Nativ after our JC summer. Reena attended Ramah Poconos and Oren attended Ramah Berkshires.
We met in the kitchen at Ramah Nyack; Gabe was the mashgiah and Nina was a CIT in Kochavim. We don’t think we actually ever spoke to each other, but we remember seeing each other.
We overlapped in camp a number of years but we never really talked to each other. I always knew “Smitty” but he had no clue who I was. He was my sister’s Rosh Gesher, and friends with my co-counselor and best friend.
