We officially met in USY, but spent summer of ’93 working together at camp.
My husband and I met at Camp Ramah and decided to follow the trend of meeting one’s spouse at Ramah along with three other couples. We have been married 39 years and have Harold Spevack and his actions to thank for it all.
We actually don’t know exactly when we met for the first time. We shared a mutual group of friends that always went out as a group and got together frequently during the year.
How wonderful to be claimed by more than one Ramah!! Ivan and I spent our camping years at Connecticut where we were in the same edah but went out with others. We started going out together in Nyack the year it opened in 1961 and continued to see each other in Connecticut in 1962 before […]
Noah and I first met when we were counselors at Camp Ramah in 1998. Camp played a big role in our relationship.
In 1977, Bruce was assistant chef and Tamar was in charge of the dining room at Ramah Nyack. We also ran the winter weekends retreats at camp.
I always loved Camp Ramah. I was a camper at Berkshires for four summers. Sandy, too, loved Ramah – he was a camper at Nyack throughout his entire childhood and came there as a counselor as soon as he was old enough to be one.
Little did I know that one day, Harriet Spevack, Rosh Mayim, and Harold Spevack, Rosh Teva (see their story), would be my mother and father-in-law!
