Years Married: 54 years
Location: Aviva’s aunt and uncle’s home, Franklin Square, Long Island
How we met:
Aviva: I was the dance instructor and Harry a counselor for 15-year-olds at Surprise Lake Camp, a Jewish Federation Camp, in Cold Springs, N.Y.
Aviva: Harry was very handsome and mysterious looking. I wanted to get to know him — although he came to camp with his long-time girlfriend.
Harry: I spotted Aviva on the camp bus. She was/is beautiful and unusually poised. I was intrigued by her demure personality and grace while dancing.
Harry: We love Israel and lived there for six years. There, Aviva joined the Bat Sheva Dance Company, and I was on the faculty of Hebrew University in Jerusalem. We’ve visited Israel since many times.
Aviva: We both love traveling. Fell in love with Italy and visited many times. We share many interests. However, any relationship requires constant work and compromise.
Harry: I agree with Aviva. I’m a work in progress.
