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.
Mark Snowise and Elisa Cook Snowise met at Camp Ramah in New England in 1981 and were married in 1992.
We first met in our Shoafim year and were again at camp together the next year in Bogrim. We were friendly but never more than acquaintances.
Jeremy Sacks and Belinda Mason Sacks met at Camp Ramah Berkshires in 1982 and were married in 1992.
Our Ramah romance story is a “classic” and serves as an example of how several years together at Ramah can help build a foundation for a relationship many years later.
Aaron and I met and became good friends on Ulpan Ramah Plus (I think it is now called SEE). He went to CES-JDS in Rockville, MD and I went to Solomon Schechter in NJ.
We met the summer of 1989, and were thrown into a two-and-a-half-year long distance relationship. I (Phyllis) continued working at camp until our wedding in 1992.
We met the summer of 1987 as Sollelim counselors. Matt was a senior counselor and I was a junior counselor.
We were engaged around Thanksgiving 1991, and married on Hanukkah in 1992. Cheryl Magen, our chadchanit, made our ketubah and was one of our witnesses.
Down by the agam? At a staff Peulah? In a quiet pagoda? Nope.
