Eric and I met for the first time the summer of 1998. It was my first year on staff and his first year as a rosh edah. We connected instantly and actually hugged each other the first time we met for no explicable reason.
When we first met, we were nine years old – in Nitzanim at Camp Ramah in California. We were friends and pen pals for years.
David Ross and Lauren Schmidt met for the first time in Los Angeles in May 2000. Or at least, the couple is pretty sure that was the first time.
