We spent a day off alone together at Sturgeon Falls, Michigan. A lot of water has passed under the bridge since then.
Ramah in Wisconsin, Ontario, the Berkshires and on Seminar gave me a love for Shabbat, Israeli dancing, and the best Conservative Judaism has to offer. I knew that I wanted to live Ramah 24/7. When I remet a Ramah Seminar peer while Israeli dancing at MIT, shared values and experience led to love and marriage.

We met in Minneapolis (Rabbi Sylvan Kamens’ front yard) where all the staff was gathering prior to our caravan drive to camp. We began dating later that summer.
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.
Arlene and I met as counselors in the Tikvah program. I was there after my first year of law school for my only year as a staff member.
We were both working in the same program and met the first night of staff training. We both did not want to be in a relationship.
Joan was Rosh Drama, attempting to put on seven shows in seven weeks. I was a lonely guy trying to learn enough Greek in one summer to start 3rd year courses at Columbia in the fall without having taken any previous ones.
