(JTA) — Construction has begun on a new Mumbai Chabad House.

The building will include a synagogue, kosher kitchen, mikveh and educational spaces, according to a Chabad-Lubavitch official in New York.

It also will include a memorial to directors Rabbi Gavriel and Rivkah Holtzberg and four visitors who were killed in the Nariman House in the November 2008 attacks on several Mumbai sites, including luxury hotels, a train station and a popular cafe. More than 170 people were killed in the attacks.
