My first friend at Beth El:
The first summer that we joined Beth El, Steve and I came to a new member picnic. We happened to sit at a table outside with another couple. What are the chances that I sit down and start talking to an actuary?!?! I am an actuary, and there are not many female actuaries . . . and this was a female Jewish actuary!!
Stephanie Harris and I became buddies right away, had kids, and have stayed friends and gone through our life cycle events together.
