Rivkah Holtzberg’s Parents to Light Candles in Mumbai


The parents of slain Chabad emissary Rivkah Holzberg will light Chanukah candles in Mumbai.

India’s reported that the couple, who live in Israel and are caring for their 2-year-old grandson Moshe, will light candles Thursday at the Gateway of India, a famed monument in southern Mumbai.

Rabbi Gavriel and Rivkah Holtzberg, emissaries in Mumbai for five years, were among six Jewish victims killed last month in the Mumbai Chabad House during a spate of terrorist attacks throughout the Indian city. Moshe escaped through the efforts of his Indian caregiver.
