Joshua David Abrams & Rachael Schultz Abrams

Rachael and Josh met during the summer of 1995 as junior counselors. The following summer, they were counselors for Shoafim and became friends. After staffing family camp during the summer of 1999, they did not see each other for several years. They ran into each other in New York City during Simchat Torah at their friend Hillary’s apartment. Rachael was working in New York City at the time, but for one assignment traveled two days a week to Philadelphia, where Josh lived. They exchanged emails and planned to meet for lunch. Lunch led to long-distance dating, and it was two years before they ended up living in the same city. They were engaged in May 2003 and married in Baltimore, Maryland on August 8, 2004, celebrating with many Ramah friends. Ramah is extremely important to both of them and they are grateful that it led them to each other!
