Micah Liben & Deborah Markowitz

Deborah and I both began at Ramah in first year Ilanot…but we “ran in different circles” throughout our summers as campers. When we were JCs in 1999, we became close, and went on to dance together in the Israeli dance performing arts group and serve as co-presidents of the Conservative minyan at Hillel at the University of Pennsylvania. We were dating by the time I left for Israel after graduation, and a year and a half later, we were engaged. When we returned to camp as roshei edot, we were gratified for the opportunity to spend time together doing the things we love: studying texts, sharing our enthusiasm with kids, and of course doing lots of folk dancing.
