Engagements

Rebecca “Becca” Siegel of Mountain View, California and Jonathan Singer of Portland, Oregon, were engaged to be married on Feb. 12. The couple happily got engaged when Singer proposed while they were on vacation together in Carmel, California.

Siegel, a graduate of the University of Washington, is a senior program manager in diversity, equity and inclusion at a major tech company, and serves as a member of the Young Adult Leadership Committee at Congregation Emanu-El in San Francisco. Singer, a Berkeley Law and Pomona College graduate, is a fifth-generation Oregonian who runs his own commercial real estate law firm. He is the chair-elect of the Oregon Jewish Community Foundation and secretary of Portland Jewish Academy and the Mittleman Jewish Community Center.

Singer is the son of Peter Singer and Sharon Stern, and grandson of Jerry (z”l) and Helen Stern and Anne (z”l) and David (z”l) Singer, all of Portland.

The couple met on Lox Club, a Jewish dating app — it didn’t hurt that his rescue dog is named Bagel and her rescue cat is named Izzy, after Palo Alto’s best bagel shop.
