We met the summer of 1987 as Sollelim counselors. Matt was a senior counselor and I was a junior counselor. We started our summer romance after cutting out early from a staff meeting inbaytoh. “Wanna go outside and get a little air?” Matt said. After that it was history. Four years of a torturous long-distance relationship between Champaign and Cincinnati. We were engaged in November of 1991 and married a year later. Our ketubah was even designed with an overlay of the Ramah logo!
Matt has gone back to be the camp doctor. By strengthening our spiritual lives, Ramah will always hold a special place in our hearts. It all still seems like yesterday.
