tehillim-20-smlr1

The English translated text is as follows (We thank Chabad.org for this text):


1. For the conductor, a song of David.


2. May the Lord answer you on a day of distress; may the name of the G-o-d of Jacob fortify you.


3. May He send your aid from His sanctuary, and may He support you from Zion.


4. May He remember all your meal offerings and may He accept your fat burnt offerings forever.


5. May He give you as your heart [desires], and may He fulfill all your counsel.


6. Let us sing praises for your salvation, and let us assemble in the name of our G-o-d; may the L-o-rd fulfill all your requests.


7. Now I know that the L-o-rd saved His anointed; He answered him from His holy heavens; with the mighty acts of salvation from His right hand.


8. These trust in chariots and these in horses, but we-we mention the name of the L-o-rd our G-o-d.


9. They kneel and fall, but we rise and gain strength.


10. O L-o-rd, save [us]; may the King answer us on the day we call.


Dear Brothers and Sisters,


We have just received some weird news:


Terrorists have attacked ten tourist sites in Bombay and Mumbai, India including a restaurant right next to Chabad house. Bullets are flying there right now and the terrorists are seeking people with British and American passports.



For the past few hours we have been unable to reach Rabbi and Mrs. Gavriel and Rivkah Holtzberg, the Shluchim to Mumbai, India, where terrorists attacks have occurred.


The Israeli foreign ministry spoke to him a few hours ago, but has not heard from him since and there is an attack on his street


The reports we are hearing from there could, and G-d willing, will be better

(For more information, you refer to: http://www.chabad.org/news/article_cdo/aid/772305/jewish/Terrorists-Strike-Mumbai.htm).


It is a time for Tefillah (prayer)!!!


Please say Tehillim (Psalm) Chapter 20 for:


  • Gavriel Noach ben Freida Bluma

  • Rivkah bas Yehudis

  • Moshe Tzvi Ben Rivkah.

Some other news reports like Http://www.Lubavitch.com show the following:


MUMBAI, INDIA — (November 26, 2008) The situation is grim late Wednesday in Mumbai (Bombay) India where reports of more than 80 dead and 250 wounded are seeping out of the beleaguered city. Of great concern is the silence from Chabad’s representatives to Mumbai, Rabbi Gavriel and Rivka Holtzberg. No one from the Chabad center has been heard from since the attacks.


The dead and wounded are victims of a sophisticated plot in which seven locations throughout the city were attacked by terrorists. Several of the city’s most exclusive hotels, a restaurant, train station, and hotel were bombed. The attacks come as the country is consumed by controversial elections.


The city, which is India’s financial capital, plays host to many foreigners and their embassies are assisting in the search and rescue efforts.


Lubavitch personnel in Bangkok, Israel and New York are working closely with the Israeli Foreign Ministry and the U.S. government to help establish contact with the Holtzbergs and other missing persons in the Chabad House area.


Mumbai’s Chabad House, situated near the sites of destruction, is a popular stop for Israeli tourists. The Holtzbergs offer a host of programs, including providing kosher food, to locals and visitors alike.


We hope and pray that we will hear good news very soon.


May Hashem answer our prayers and I will share good news when I have it.
