We actually met during a course together but didn’t get to know each other until the summer. One day one of the staff members told me that Zip had her eye on me.
We were both working on a Ramah weekend. I had been a camper and staff (including summers) for years, and Eric had worked Hebrew high weekends as staff.
We met on Ramah Seminar in Israel in 1990, and had a romantic walk under the stars in the Negev.
I had been at Ramah since Shorashim, but Solelim was Sandi’s first summer.
We met while I was a JC and John was an AA. We “went out” for three long days and then broke up. We did not speak for the rest of the summer.
Todd and I met on a canoe trip to Silver Birches on Lake Skeleton the first week at camp.
Technically, we met as campers, but really we met and became friends on Tzevet Solelim. Distractions such as television were not an issue. We had one another’s undivided attention.
We sang Rad Hayom at the end of our wedding with all of our camp friends linked arm in arm.
We had actually met and dated briefly three years earlier in USY, but had completely lost touch until the summer of 1993.
We originally met through our involvement in international USY, but we “re-met” in the summer of 1995, when we were both group leaders for Ramah Seminar.
