We came from different camps (Jonathan from Poconos and Roni from Canada) and met on Ramah Seminar in 2012. Yonatan was a yoetz and Roni was a Rosh Kvutza.
We first met in Israel on Seminar Plus, but we didn’t keep in touch after the summer. Matt continued on as a counselor at Wisconsin, and Aviva returned to Palmer.
Elliot and I met on Israel Seminar 1999. We were on the same bus and immediately became very good friends. By the end of the summer, we had become great friends and promised to keep in touch.
Merisa- Berkshires; Asher- New England: An unexpected match!
We met in preparation for our work on Israel Seminar.
We met at Camp Ramah in Israel in the magical summer of 1968. We were both 15.
We actually met during a course together but didn’t get to know each other until the summer. One day one of the staff members told me that Zip had her eye on me.
I roomed on the first Israel Seminar with Ellen Panush Zelenko through whom I met her brother, Richard, a many year veteran of Wisconsin Ramah.
Ramah in Wisconsin, Ontario, the Berkshires and on Seminar gave me a love for Shabbat, Israeli dancing, and the best Conservative Judaism has to offer. I knew that I wanted to live Ramah 24/7. When I remet a Ramah Seminar peer while Israeli dancing at MIT, shared values and experience led to love and marriage.
