Jewish History

The city of Mumbai, India, was hit with a series of coordinated terror attacks, starting on Wednesday evening, the 29th of Cheshvan 5769, which left close to 200 dead and scores more injured.

One of the terrorists' chosen targets was the local Chabad House, known as the "Nariman House," operated by Chabad-Lubavitch emissaries Rabbi Gavriel Noach (Gabi) and Rivkah (Rivki) Holtzberg.

In the subsequent standoff, which continued until Friday afternoon, Gabi and Rivki and several other Jews in the Chabad House – Rabbis Bentzion Chroman and Leibish Teitelbaum, Norma Schwartzblatt-Rabinowitz and Yocheved Orpaz – were killed in cold blood. May G‑d avenge their murders.

Miraculously, the Holtzbergs' two-year-old child, Moshe, was saved by his nanny.

Daily Thought

Fixing up the world is always an inside job.

What do we fix? That which we need.

When do we fix anything? When we are in need.

Why do we fix anything? Because our destiny is tied to the destiny of that which we repair and improve.

So it is with the food we eat, the bodies in which we live, the business in which we work, and the community in which we live.

So it is with every fellow traveler through life to whom we wish to lend a helping hand.

Nobody can come from the outside, stay outside, and make real, lasting, beneficial change.
