Summer of 1983. I was finally in the oldest edah, Gesher. It was Alan’s first summer at camp as a counselor. However, it wasn’t until 1987 that we truly fell in love. Summer of 1991 we went back to Poconos. As we were both living in Israel, our parents had never met. Alan and I got engaged on visiting day when our parents finally met each other on the volleyball court.
After we married in 1992, we moved into our first home—at the Goldstein Youth Village, a.k.a. “The Havah.” We were counselors for TRY Akiba and TRY Australia. We haven’t had such a luxurious home since. We are still in touch with our Ramah roots both personally and professionally.
