Loren Sykes & Rebecca Kaplan Sykes

Loren was the great older brother of my friend Vicki, and also a counselor when we were in Nivonim. He and Scott Moses convinced several of us to attend the Joint Program at JTS, and we became friends there and when I was on staff at camp.

When I was a Nivonim counselor, and he was the program director, we became closer, and started dating that fall. The next summer, Minda Garr and Emily Soloff took Loren into the back room of the director’s house and kindly suggested he propose to me at camp. He is such a good listener.

We were married in New York, then spent our honeymoon at Wisconsin (the next summer) with 450 of our favorite campers. True love, no?
