Sam and Deborah Barsky: Finding Love at the JCC


Welcome back to Pull Up A Chair, our monthly podcast where we explore different themes and what it means to build and be a part of a strong Jewish community.

In this episode of Pull Up A Chair, Finding true love at the J! Yes, it’s possible.

Sam and Deborah Barsky are the proof. But it took a few laps at the JCC pool to get there.

For some time, Sam and Deborah only waded timidly in the shallow end of romance. But there was a spark there, even if no one knew it yet.

Hear how these two met. Spoiler alert — Deborah’s mom played a small role.
