Revisiting Mumbai’s Chabad House

December 25, 2008 9:45 AM
Mumbai’s devastated Chabad-Lubavitch center was filled with light once more on Thursday as dozens of Jews returned to the destruction to hold prayer services and an impromptu Chasidic gathering. As the wordless melodies shifted from somber chords to upbeat tempos, some of the visitors, who included Rabbi Nachman and Freida Holtzberg, and Rabbi Shimon and Yehudit Rosenberg – the parents of slain Chabad House directors Rabbi Gavriel and Rivka Hotzberg – walked through the building’s corridors.

Indian police stand guard outside the Chabad House in Mumbai as the restored 25-foot Chanukah menorah greets passersby. The Chabad House was a study in contrasts, with blasted out walls juxtaposed against an apparently undamaged collection of the Holtzbergs’ holy books.
