Ephram and I first met at USY Fall Convention in 2003, when we were introduced to one another by mutual friends. We worked together on Tzevet Machon 2005 during our JC summer at Ramah Poconos.
Michele and Adam were in Nitzanim together in 1997 but that was long before anyone could have guessed they would be married 18 years later.
Sarah and Ben actually met in 2004, when they were both campers but weren’t really friends until they re-met on Tzevet Nitzanim in 2009.
Shira grew up going to Camp Ramah in California, but Justin’s first summer at camp was as a moomche, or specialist, in the summer of 2005 (a drum/rock band moomche to be exact!) Shira was a Giboreh counselor but they did not really meet that year.
Julia and Omer met as counselors at Camp Ramah in New England in 2009. On the first day of second session, Julia had to take her bunk to boating chug where Omer, a member of the mishlachat, was serving as a lifeguard.

In the beginning of 2012, Laura was in Israel on OTZMA and Ari was finishing his degree at Binghamton. They were both looking for jobs and stumbled upon the American Hebrew Academy where they had an intensive Fellowship program. They both applied, both were offered the job, and both showed up in August of 2012.
It was love at first sight, although Raz doesn’t remember our first encounter. Mine and Raz’s friend Lindsey, a fellow Ramahnik, had told me about this great guy who I had to meet.
Paula first went to Berkshires as a JC in 2008 before going to Washington University in St. Louis, where she met Jeremy.
