Loren Bach & Naomi Hoffman

We met during Bogrim summer in 1998 but didn’t start dating until we were junior counselors in 2002 (Loren was on waterfront, Naomi was on Machon staff). We went to different colleges, so coming back to be on staff for a second summer really allowed our relationship to grow. After college, we lived together in New York City where every day was a Ramah reunion—we frequently got together with friends and cousins who had attended Ramah and reminisced about our time as campers and staff. Under the chuppah, Rabbi Bernard Lipnick (who went to Camp Ramah in the 40s) joked that our wedding was one big Ramah reunion. Both our parents met and started dating at Camp Ramah. We obviously know where we’re sending our future children for summer camp!
