Jonathan Bloom & Michelle Weisfelner Bloom

We met when we were 15 years old and both campers in Machon. Jonathan had been there for many years but it was my first summer. Although we were not originally close friends, we always remained in touch through mutual Ramah friends until the summer of 1995. Jonathan was on staff that summer and I came up for the night to see my sister’s Bogrim play. We reconnected and started dating at the end of that summer. Though we spent some time apart in college, we began dating again on New Years Eve 2000. The rest is history. There must be something magical in the air there. If not, how could you explain how so many of us found not only love, but lifelong friendships there, that span well beyond our years as campers and into adulthood.
