      Sigal and I met in one of the most mundane situations. I had a job interview at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s Rothberg International School, Office of Student Activities. I was interviewing for a student counselor position and Sigal, then the social coordinator of the preparatory program, interviewed me. The interview was very professional. We didn’t know each other, so everything was straightforward and to the point. There were no signs of any romance.

      I got the job and started working closer with Sigal; we were part of a team of four counselors. Gradually, we got to know each other a little better and our work conversations became more and more personal. We became really good friends and about three months after my start date, we started dating. Because we didn’t want to hurt our peers’ feelings, we kept our relationship a secret for four long months—without anyone finding out! When we realized it was true love, we opened up about it and received a lot of love and support from our peers who, at that point, were really our friends. Sigal and I have been together ever since and just got married two months ago. We finished our studies at Hebrew U as M.A. alumni and as partners for life.
