Gidon’s parents met at Princeton University and made Aliyah in 1994. Gidon met David Newman while playing American Football, and quickly became best friends. Gidon is a valedictorian in Mathematics at Hebrew University, spent a year in America working in the field of Probability and Game Theory, and, before October 7th, was teaching calculus at Hebrew University.
“David was a fierce competitor, the most fun and joyous person I’ve ever met. He would do anything for anyone, literally. We are inspired by every aspect of our dear friend and are doing what we know he would have wanted us to do – with a hug and a smile.”
