"In the midst of all the chaos of the disaster that happened to us, our generation's choice of Gerber's baby of the year was a pure moment of joy.

He was an outstanding athlete and gifted in kicks and saw the next generation as his successor.

We also encourage the girls to excel and achieve sports, but there is something in the connection between father and son that Barak was waiting for, along with the whole family."



Dana adds that when a generation was born, it was decided to call it that because it is a generation that continues in the lineage of the Lufen family, an extensive and rooted family, from the founders of Kibbutz Ginosar.

"He won't remember anything from Lightning, only from pictures and stories, so we said we'd go for the competition to bring some lightness to the difficult time we're going through. When they called to tell us that Dor had won - we were shocked and happy. It was a pure moment of joy. An ordinary moment in the life of an ordinary family," says Dana , "The girls of course cheer him on, show him off and win."
