Ohad Munder-Zichri’s Favorite Warm Chocolate Cake

Their favorite dish: Ohad Munder loves chocolate cakes the best. Adi Shilon prepared a warm chocolate fudge cake for him and his mother

Ohad Munder-Zichri has several loves in his life: the Hungarian Rubik’s Cube, soccer, tennis and eating chocolate cake. An only grandchild to Ruti and Abraham Munder, 9 year old Ohad enjoys the endless pampering and spoiling on the part of his grandparents and never misses an opportunity to shine his love onto family and friends. Ohad helps his dad raise birds; he excels in everything he does and is known for his talent, curious mind and exceptional intellect. A diehard Liverpool and Hapoel Be’er-Sheva fan, Ohad’s love of soccer comes from his beloved Uncle Roy. His collection of soccer cards is dear to his heart and loves to sit people down and teach them about all his favorite players.

Keren Ohad’s mom. Is an exceptional and highly celebrated Physical Education teacher who’s won countless awards in the field of PE for children with special needs. Volleyball is Keren’s game- she played it from a very young age, has coached for years and is adored by those in the sport. Keren believes that she can achieve anything and she believes the same is true for her students. Keren is that friend we all want by our side, one that even after a long conversation leaves us wanting more. Keren lights up the world with her energy, endless patience and her ability to spread happiness; she is loved, appreciated and adored. Born in kibbutz Nir-Oz in 1969, Keren was the first born to Ruti and Avraham, older sister to Roy, loving partner to Avi and a loving, dedicated mother to Ohad.

Keren and Ohad were visiting kibbutz Nir-Oz to celebrate the holiday with Savta Ruti and Saba Avraham on October 7th.

Roy Monder, Ohad’s beloved uncle, was murdered. After 49 days in captivity, Ruti, Keren and Ohad we released.
