Administration Through The Ages

Camp Massad has always had very strong leadership. The administration (hanhallah) consists of the Executive Director (the camp Ee-mah or Abba (אמא/אבא)), the Director of Planning and Programming (meh-nu-hel) and usually between 3-6 other members. In keeping with the spirit of Massad, the administration usually writes a song every year. The Camp Ee-mahs/Abbas (אמא/אבא) through the years have all been fantastic and instrumental to the growth of the camp!

  • Leona Billinkoff was the ee-mah (אמא) from 1953-1978; one of the founders of the camp.

  • Sophie Tapper was the ee-mah (אמא) from 1979-1990.

  • Davita S. was the ee-mah (אמא) in 1991.

  • Linda Bloomfield was the ee-mah (אמא) from 1992-1998.

  • Marla Aronovitch was the ee-mah (אמא) from 1999-2000.

  • Lesley Jacob was the ee-mah (אמא) from 2001-2009.

  • Regina Teplitsky was the ee-mah (אמא) in 2010.

  • Danial Sprintz has been the Abba (אבא) since 2011; and is the current Abba.
