We met over the volleyball net the Shabbat afternoon of pre-camp, and have been eating sunflower seeds together ever since.
Eitan and I met in ’92, mostly ignored each other until ’95, and then were “just friends” until 2000.
We first met when Marni was a bratty camper with her bratty friends. We re-met as staff members and friends.
We met early in the summer of 1969 (my first summer at Ramah – Shimon had been going for a few years) when the Women’s League were visiting and 2 senior (it was called Machon then) campers were chosen to speak to them.
Jared and I met when I was teaching, or rather trying to teach, his youngest brother, Shael, how to swim.
Marty Goldberg and Sharon Zabitsky Goldberg met in 1984 at Camp Ramah in California and were married in 1987.
Ramah in Wisconsin, Ontario, the Berkshires and on Seminar gave me a love for Shabbat, Israeli dancing, and the best Conservative Judaism has to offer. I knew that I wanted to live Ramah 24/7. When I remet a Ramah Seminar peer while Israeli dancing at MIT, shared values and experience led to love and marriage.
We were on the same Yom Sport team.
My husband and I met at Camp Ramah in Canada and then went on Israel Seminar together. We both attended the University of Michigan and ended up in the same dorm. Our son, Aaron, also met his wife, Marci Orman, at Camp Ramah in Canada.
