BABY MOSHE’S BACK
Nothing good can come out of a terror attack that results in the death of 164 people and wrecks the lives of countless more. But Moshe Holtzberg’s visit to Mumbai, a little over nine years after his parents were killed on November 26, 2008, was an occasion for genuine happiness. His story was at once heart-wrenching and hopeful, an Israeli toddler rescued by his Indian nanny who found him alive beside the stricken bodies of his parents. Now 11, Moshe returned to Chabad House in Mumbai last week on the invitation of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. A “living memorial” at Chabad House to the victims of 26/11 was opened by Modi’s Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu, but there was no mistaking the presence of Moshe as the emotional core of the event. His visit, said the rabbi who runs Chabad House, was “very emotional”.
