Condolence I am deeply appalled by the killing of Rabbi Gabriel Hotltzberg and his wife Rivika Hotltzberg in the barbaric terrorist attack on the Nariman house in Mumbai which rendered the couple two year son Moshe orphan and deprived him from the care, protection and love of his father and mother for rest of his life.No one can fill this vaccum and emptiness in little Moshe life. I share this grief and pray to God to give strength and peace of mind to Hotltzberg family & Jewish community and uphold the Little Moshe life unto his mighty hand.Let the healing of God cover the brokenness in little Moshe life.

Thsi tragic occurance in Mumbai shall serve as a reminder to all Jews accross the world, that we will not be fully secured till the coming of the Moshaich. May the memories of the Hotltzberg's remain with us for ever for their great self sacrifice. Reply

Barukh Dayan Emet Dear Rabbis of the CHABAD,
It is with deep sorrow and sadness that we received the painful tragic news about the events at the Chabad House in Mumbai. We will remember the Rabbis and their families in our prayers. We hold to the hope of the day of resurrection, when the Mashiach will come and establishes peace and justice over all the earth.
Shalom uvrakha
