A house rebuilt

Chabad House, the Jewish outreach centre that was attacked during the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks nearly six years ago, reopened on Tuesday. Besides 25 rabbis from across Asia, the parents of rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg, who was killed along with his wife Rivka, were present at the reopening ceremony. Moshe, the then 2-year-old son of Gavriel and Rivka, was saved by nanny Sandra Samuel and family cook Qazi Zakir Hussain. The child now lives in Israel with his grandparents


Moshe is now seven-and-a-half years old and lives with Rivka Holtzberg’s parents Shimon and Yehudit Rosenberg in Israel. “He’s grown up now and goes to school. Nanny Sandra comes to visit him once a week. We make sure that he remembers the memory of his parents and talk to him about them. He still doesn’t understand what exactly happened to them. He looks exactly like his father,” said rabbi Nachman Holtzberg, Gavriel’s father
