Camp Mona Opens This Summer 2022 Early Childhood Day Camp Named For Dr. Mona Riklis Ackerman

With great excitement, The Hampton Synagogue announces the dedication and inaugural summer of Camp Mona @ The Hampton Synagogue Children’s Center, a premier early childhood day camp for 2-4 year-olds.

This magnanimous contribution, by Ari Ackerman and Gila Ackerman, is in loving memory of their mother, Dr. Mona Riklis Ackerman, remembered as a devoted mother and grandmother, an accomplished psychologist, and a prominent philanthropist dedicated to Jewish life.

Camp Mona will enjoy the state-of-the-art facilities of The Hampton Synagogue Children’s Center – Jack’s House, nearing completion, and the Levin Family Children’s Campus, currently under construction.

Registration opens March 1, 2022.

Camp Mona continues a family legacy of supreme generosity. The Hampton Synagogue Benefactors Walls, designed and created in Israel, were dedicated by Dr. Mona Riklis Ackerman in memory of her mother, Judith Riklis, and the beautiful Israeli stained-glass windows of the Berman Sanctuary were dedicated by Ari Ackerman and Gila Ackerman in loving memory of their mother, Mona.

In announcing this gift, Founding Rabbi Marc Schneier noted “The support and generosity of the Riklis/Ackerman family has, for three generations, been at the forefront of facilitating the remarkable growth and development of The Hampton Synagogue. That legacy continues with Ari’s leadership as a synagogue Trustee. It is particularly meaningful that our first class of Camp Mona campers will include Simona Ackerman, beloved daughter of Ari & Lauren, marking a fourth generation at The Hampton Synagogue.

For further information on Summer 2022 children’s programs including Camp Mona – 2-4 years, after-camp enrichment programs – 5 years and up, Mommy and Me & toddlers – 12-24 months, and Sunday Family Fun, contact Marissa J. Becker, Children’s Center Director – marissa@thehamptonsynagogue.org.

The Hampton Synagogue Welcomes Marissa J. Becker as New Director of the Children's Center

The Hampton Synagogue announces the appointment of Marissa J. Becker as Director of The Hampton Synagogue Children’s Center, including Jack’s House and the Levin Family Children’s Campus, under construction.

Welcoming Ms. Becker to The Hampton Synagogue, Founding Rabbi Marc Schneier said, “The Hampton Synagogue Children’s Center is a once-in-a-generation project that will transform our congregation, Jewish life in the Hamptons, and the broader community. I am thrilled that an extraordinary educator with a speciality in early childhood and summer camp like Marissa will be at its helm as we embark upon the next generation of excellence at The Hampton Synagogue.”

Hampton Synagogue President Carol Levin remarked, “It has long been my dream for our synagogue to offer a world-class experience for the children of our community at the same level of the cultural and educational programming for which we are internationally renowned. In Ms. Becker, we have the talented, dynamic leader who is such a major first step of the realization of that dream.

Marissa J. Becker, a graduate of SUNY Albany, earned her MS in Elementary & Special Education with honors from Touro College. She comes to The Hampton Synagogue from the National Foundation for Jewish Camp, where she managed all inclusion and disability programming, planning and facilitating large-scale trainings for camp professionals.

Previously, she was the director of K-12 Education at Brooklyn’s Congregation Beth Elohim, where she led a team of over 25 teachers and oversaw a 37% increase in enrollment in three years.

The Hampton Synagogue Children’s Center, encompassing a full block, will provide an extraordinary array of facilities, including a beautiful athletic field, volleyball court, regulation basketball court, swimming pool, playground, STEM learning center, music studio, art studio, library, multisensory learning & activity studio, and children’s chapel.

It will be a destination for children and families across the Hamptons, offering the highest standards in recreation, arts, athletics, educational experiences, and social activities – all within the vibrant environment of The Hampton Synagogue.
