We met the summer of 2000 (Chalutzim) at Ramah Wisconsin. We got married November 25, 2012.
Ramah couples celebrate simchas every year and we would love to celebrate you! Ramah marriages can be defined in many ways; whether you met your spouse at camp, or simply married another Ramahnik from a different camp, your Ramah matrimony is something special! There are more than six decades worth of wonderful stories. To have your Ramah marriage listed on our website please submit your story.
We had to come all the way from Israel to Camp Ramah in Wisconsin to meet each other…and when Barak planned to propose, he forgot the ring at camp!
We spent a day off alone together at Sturgeon Falls, Michigan. A lot of water has passed under the bridge since then.
We first met in Israel on Seminar Plus, but we didn’t keep in touch after the summer. Matt continued on as a counselor at Wisconsin, and Aviva returned to Palmer.
Although we are both from Beth El in Highland Park, we didn’t get to know each other until we were both on staff in the Northwoods.
We met in 1996, our Solelim summer at Camp Ramah in Wisconsin.
Sam Caplan and Sarah Ettinger Caplan met at Camp Ramah in Wisconsin in 2003 and were married in 2008.
We met during Bogrim summer in 1998 but didn’t start dating until we were junior counselors in 2002 (Loren was on waterfront, Naomi was on Machon staff).
We crossed kikar paths a few times as campers but “met” as junior counselors. We formed an amazing friendship, which grew into a meaningful relationship through our college years, then a 40+ year wonderful marriage.
We were really a mixed marriage because Elliot grew up in Milwaukee and the Wisconsin camp and Marlynn grew up in Philadelphia and the Poconos camp. We met in Mador in 1961, which at the time was a national program for training counselors.
