Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met Wednesday with Israeli youth Moshe Holtzberg, a survivor of the November 2008 terrorist attack that killed his parents and seven others at Mumbai’s Chabad House.
His late parents, Rabbi Gavriel and Rivka Holtzberg, were directors of the Jewish center. Moshe was a toddler at the time and was rescued by his nanny, who fled the building with him. Now 10-years-old, Moshe lives in Afula with his grandparents, Rabbi Shimon and Yehudit Rosenberg, who joined him at the event, along with his former nanny, Sandra Samuel, who came with him to Israel.
Holtzberg told the Indian prime minister that he misses India, wish to eventually go back to reopen the Chabad House his parents had established, and Modi responded that the country is open to him. Netanyahu meanwhile invited Holtzberg to accompany him on his upcoming visit to India. Read more at JPOST.
