Mark Cooper & Amy Skopp Cooper

Mark and I met as roshei edot at Camp Ramah New England. I had been working at the camp for several years. Mark is an Ojai product who came to New England when fellow Ojai staff member, Gil Graff became director of New England. We dated for several years (off and on) while Mark was at JTS rabbinical school and I was at Hebrew University. After graduating, we both ended up in Boston. I was the assistant to the New England Ramah director, Mark was the associate rabbi at Temple Israel in Natick. We married in 1986.
