Ari Derman & Talia Goldblatt Derman

We met in 1996, our Solelim summer at Camp Ramah in Wisconsin. We were placed in the same Hebrew and text classes and would trade off buying each other cans of Cherry Coke from the camp vending machines to bring to class. We became friends that summer and our friendship grew over the years. Then during our Nivonim summer in 2000, we began our romantic relationship. It was not always easy, as we lived in different states and attended different colleges, but we made it work and Camp Ramah played an important role in bringing us together every summer.
