Mumbai Memorial Service


Pained and shaken. The heart of the world is devastated by the senseless terror attacks at the Chabad House in Mumbai, India. Rabbi Gabi and Rivka Holtzberg selflessly gave of themselves to serve hundreds and were slain mercilessly as they were serving!

A memorial service will be held for Rabbi & Mrs. Holtzberg and all terror victims of the Mumbai attacks on Monday night. The community is invited to attend this moment of reflection and remembrance.
