Little Moshe arrives in Mumbai, says he's very happy

Rabbi Avraham Berkowitz speaks with Chairman of Chabad network of international centres Rabbi Yehuda Krinsky as they visit the Nariman House in Mumbai

On Friday, "Moshe will fly back to Israel with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu", whose India visit began on Sunday.

"During the 26/11 terror attacks the parents of Moshe - Gavriel and Rivka Holtzberg â€" were killed by Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists at the Chabad House, earlier known as the Nariman House.

Moshe had planned to travel to Mumbai when he turns 13, following an invitation by the PM Narendra Modi the plan got fast-forwarded by two years.

A shy bespectacled Moshe clutched on the hands of his grandfather Rabbi Holtzberg Nachman and grandmother Yehudit Rosenberg as they navigated through a sea of mediapersons at Mumbai airport.

Moshe left Mumbai, where he was born, soon after the attacks and now lives with his maternal grandparents in the Israeli city of Afula, studying in a yeshivah (a religious school for the Jews).

Moshe's parents were directors of the Chabad House, a Jewish centre, also known as Nariman House, one of the sites of the terror attack in which 164 were killed.

She found the two-year-old crying next to the bodies of his parents; she picked him up and dashed out along with the Nariman House cook Zakir Qazi.

His visit is of great significance to his grandparents and the current Rabbi Israel Kozlovsky, as this is the first time Moshe is visiting the city and building where his parents were killed. The memorial will include the Holtzberg's apartment along with the floor where the terror attack occurred. This is Moshe Holtzberg's second visit to Mumbai after he had lost his parents in the attack. The boy is now 11 years old.

Moshe's cries for his mother - "Imma (mother)" - during a special prayer service held days later at Keneseth Eliyahoo Synagogue at Kala Godha was among the most heartrending moments in the aftermath of 26/11.

"Moshe definitely has a huge emotional bond with India and Mumbai".

Kozolovasky said Moshe also wanted to see the Gateway of India during his visit.
