Tara and I met when we were part of the Chavurah program as camp waiters in ’79. We did not start dating until the next summer when I was a Mador and she worked in the kitchen.

OK, Sheri says she first noticed me as a guy who would spent time studying college catalogs trying to figure out what I would be taking the next semester or whether I should even transfer to a different school.
We were really a mixed marriage because Elliot grew up in Milwaukee and the Wisconsin camp and Marlynn grew up in Philadelphia and the Poconos camp. We met in Mador in 1961, which at the time was a national program for training counselors.
Galia and Adam first met when she was a member of a shlichut to Ojai in Summer 2003. They became closer friends upon her return summer in 2004, but it was not until Adam was studying for the year in Jerusalem (2004-05) that the two started to date.
Jon and I met at Ramah as campers when we were 13 years old and were best of friends. We kept in touch through letters for the year following that summer, but then we lost touch.
Michael and I were campers at the same time, but because we were a year apart, we never really interacted. It was not until we were staff members together in Tzophim that we really connected.
We were both working on a Ramah weekend. I had been a camper and staff (including summers) for years, and Eric had worked Hebrew high weekends as staff.
Micky and I dated the year he went to Israel with Meritz, while I was back at camp. (We were friends a year earlier).
Jeremy Rosenthal and Gwen Shelden Rosenthal met in 1998 at Camp Ramah in California and were married in 2000.
We were introduced by a mutual friend during the summer of 1983.
