Shimoni Family

Giora Shimoni & Lisa Katz Shimoni

Lisa (Columbus, Ohio) spent the summer working at camp before going to Israel to study at the Schechter Institute and Hebrew University. Giora (Nir Galim, Israel) spent the summer working at camp between finishing his army service and beginning to study at Beit Berl. The romance began instantly at camp (1986) and continued in Israel, where the knot was officially tied (1988). The camp atmosphere contributed to our union — it enabled us to get to know the real person in each of us without all the exterior trappings and it provided, via the beautiful Wisconsin woods and lake, the perfect backdrop for romance. Today Lisa and Giora live (happily ever after) in Modiin, Israel with their four children (Maytal, Noam, Gilad, Yael).
