We met Gesher pre-camp during the summer of 1993. Michael had just finished his freshman year at Berkeley and I had finished my sophomore year at Tulane. Michael had attended Ramah his whole life, except for the summer previously – my first year on staff. We hit it off right away and were delighted to find out we would be working Machon together for the rest of the summer. It ended up being a quick, crazy and intense summer, because I was leaving for Israel for my junior year abroad at Hebrew U. We were having a lot of fun with Machon staff (Carnie Rose was an understanding rosh edah!) and campers and enjoyed a fantastic Tzaada Trip to Big Sur. But we were also very caught up with each other. In the end, Michael came to Israel for the second semester of that year and we headed back to Ramah for our final year in 1994. We were married in 1999 and have two girls: Nora – 2, and Sadie – 3 months.
