On our way up to Mt. Carmel, Marylin was saying how she could not stand Southern accents and Danny Berger, an old friend from Ramah Wisconsin said meet Marty Berman from Jacksonville, Florida.
We were on the same bus on Seminar.
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.
My wife of nearly 15 years, Ilene Spark-Greenberg, was a camper at Wisconsin and a counselor at New England. I was a staff brat, a camper, a counselor and a rosh edah at New England.
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.
Matt and Lisa met the first day of the Seminar trip in the summer of 1996. Lisa attended Ramah in Ojai, CA. Matt was from Savannah, GA but attended camp in Palmer for many years.
As you know, I have recently spent four months of my high school career in Israel on a program called Tichon Ramah Yerushalayim.
