awful
This never sits right with me. I hope justice comes to those responsible.
I cannot help but to feel anger and sadness. Jews need to arm themselves if they are to live abroad. I remember hearing the news about this when it happened. And I'm still very concerned for their families, and can't imagine their pain.

Senseless Love
Those who kill so unconscionably,as they did in Mumbai, to Hashem's emissaries, did so because they lacked humanity. To turn this around to say the victims did not accomplish anything, or that their beauty and love for their fellow Jews and their humanity to others was a waste of time or useless, is indeed born of a callous heart.

The people who created such destruction and slaughter were indeed G-dless. Lack of reason, inability to love, inability to rationalize and an intense disconnection to the suffering of others. Also racist because they targeted a Jewish religious couple, and those they were helping.

Welcome to the sick mind of a psychopath.

Little Moshe was blessed to have come from such a warm and caring family. Their deeds and all they did was from the light, and that is a powerful testimony for their little Moshe to live by. Hashem has His great and Holy hand on that child and He will not let go of him. Mercy and light from the Great and Holy One.

Love must be balanced, like anything else in life
One must have a balance. Love is related to chesed, kindness, yet the same term ie 'chesed' applies to the misuse of love to commit sexual abuse. To be overly kind to the cruel, the Talmud warns us, is to ultimately be cruel to the kind.

We have to strike the correct balance, but amongst our people we are, perhaps, lacking in seemingly 'senseless' love. There is too much in-fighting and too much judgementalism. We do need more love for one another--and hatred for those who wish to destroy us and our society.

Our World
I know they say "where their life ther's hope" , and I'm not in judgement of peoples choices---but how can anyone say that when someone devotes their llives to making a better world for us all that that's not an accomplishment. And our loved ones are always with us. In one minute everything can change----and we will see our righteous people once again. Of course while we live we do our best to live life to the fullest and bring G'dliness to our world. May we see no more sorrow---With Moshiach now>

Senseless love is just that
It got them killed. Where is the accomplishment in that?

Comfort
To avenge the blood of those murdered is a given. We know we must do all in our power to seek justice. But it is not a comfort. When the perpetrators of the crime are dead, Rabbi Gabi and Rivki and all the others are also still dead. Moishy is still an orphan. There is some comfort in knowing that people are doing more good- that the world is becoming a better place.

We had the opportunity to attend a kabbalat Shabbat with Rav Holtzberg in the Kenneth Eliyahoo Synagogue not far from the Taj Hotel during our visit in Bombay this summer. He was a wonderful person and this was a very special and peaceful evening with guests from all over the world. Wihen the whole kehile from all corners of the world on this summer shabbat evening began chanting the lecha dodi there was a very special unity among all of us. We will always have him in our hearts.
