“Ramah Darom is a breath of calm in a busy, confusing world. It has also been a place of beginnings for me: Limmud was my first introduction to the Atlanta Jewish community, it was the birthplace of the chavura I’m a part of now, and Ramah Darom was where my husband and I were married and began our life together. I would say it’s pretty important to both of us, and we look forward to returning as often as possible as a family.”
