Julie and I met our Machon year, but did not become friendly until Nivonim and then Ramah Seminar in Israel. Still, we did not date until Julie and I found ourselves in Chicago during the mid-90s. We both had maintained close friends from Ramah who encouraged us to re-connect. We finally started dating and a few years later, we got married. We moved to Los Angeles in 1998 and have two children, Ella and Ezra. Ramah will always have an incredibly special place in our hearts.
