Israeli Boy Moshe Orphaned By Terrorist


A two-year-old Israeli boy, who was waiting for two days to be reunited with his parents Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg and his wife Rivka Holtzberg on his birthday on Friday, will never see them again.

The bodies of the parents were found by the Commandos of the National Security Guards who stormed the Nariman House in south Mumbai killing the two holed-up terrorists on Friday evening thus, ending the hostage crisis.

The death of the couple was also confirmed by the director of American Friends of Lubavitch, Rabi Levi Shemtov, following uncertainty over the identity of those killed in the building. The baby Moshe Tzvi had been taken out by his nanny yesterday when the terrorists stormed into the Nariman House in south Mumbai which houses one of the biggest Jewish centre in the city.

The baby’s second birthday was on Friday but the grand parents, who flew from Israel after the hostage crisis began, decided to put off celebrations in the hope of celebrating it all together with their children. The grand parents, Shimon and Yehudit Rosenberg, who arrived in Mumbai met their grand son after driving directly to the Nariman building from the airport.

“Moshe was supposed to celebrate his second birthday on Friday, but the family decided to postpone the celebration because of the difficult events,” they told ‘Ynet’.
