Dave and I met as campers at Ramah in Palmer. We became good friends and shared mutual friends. It was not until after Ramah that we began dating. We randomly kept in touch and had our paths cross a few times, both in Israel and in the States. Our wedding which took place in Johnson City, TN, had many Ramahniks (throughout the generations) present. Ramah helped shape both of our Jewish identities and solidified our relationships to Judaism. The Ramah experience fostered an environment of Jewish learning, questioning, growth and love of Zionism, all of which play a major role in our lives as individuals and as a married couple. I am confident that our Ramah “upbringing” will influence our lives for years to come.
