ACKERMAN--Mona. UJA-Federation of New York mourns the passing of Dr. Mona Ackerman, a committed Jewish leader and friend. Her generosity and dedication to Jewish causes here and in Israel are widely respected and inspirational. Dr. Ackerman followed in the footsteps of her philanthropic family with a devotion to the mission of UJA-Federation, strengthening Jewish life, and supporting the people of Israel. Her legacy will live on in the continuing efforts of her family, whose extraordinary philanthropic leadership has had a profound impact worldwide. We extend our condolences to her children, Ari Ackerman and Gila Ackerman Steinbock; father, Meshulum Riklis, a UJA-Federation honorary officer; sister, Marcia Riklis, UJA-Federation campaign chair; brother, Ira Riklis (Diana); and entire family.
