Sick Holtzberg Son, 4, Dies

The son of a Chabad couple killed last month in Mumbai has died.

Dov Holtzberg, the 4-year-old son of Chabad emissaries Gavriel and Rivka Holtzberg, died of a genetic disease and was buried Tuesday morning next to his parents and older brother. His brother died of the same disease two years ago.

Dov had been living in a long-term care facility in Jerusalem.

Thursday marks the end of the 30-day mourning period for Gavriel and Rivka Holtzberg, killed during terrorist attacks by Islamic gunmen on Mumbai, including the Chabad House. A ceremony to unveil their tombstones is scheduled for Thursday morning.
