A group of video editors have made a video about the Holtzberg and their guests.
The work of  love,  completed  in  48  hours,  included  many photos and  unseen footage of the Holtzbergs, and interviews with both Gavirel Noach and Rivkah – including an interview in which she makes  Elkanah  Shmotkin  a “prophetic” reference  about Sandra, the Nanny who ended up saving her son’s life.

Footage and photos  were  collected  on  several continents, with many people helping out, including  individuals  in  Israeli  TV  stations,  El  Al  pilots, photographers in Mumbai, and all the  Lubavitch  news  sites. It includes Gavirel Noach meeting with the Rebbe and a look into the inspiration that led Gavirel Noach and Rivkah to go to Mumbai.

The JEM staff worked around the clock from immediately after Shabbos, and completed the video before the Levaya.

It was edited by Yankee Teitelbaum, Yanky Ascher, Alon Schwartz and Yossi Margolin. Mendel Gourarie and Shmueli Shmotkin coordinated much of the research. It was written and produced by Elkanah Shmotkin.

 

 

They have called the video, “Love Means Love.” They dedicate their work to the Kedoshim.
 

 

The video is available at www.chabad.org.

 

We’d like to remind you the following:

 

Among with other pure souls whose names are as follows were murdered, Hashem Yikom Damam (May G-d, A-l-mighty, avenge the bloods of those holy individuals!!!):

 

·       Rabbi Gavirel and his wife Rivkah Holtzberg, the Shluchim (Emessaries) of the Lubavitcher Rebbe who ran the Chabad House

 

·       Rabbi Aryeh Leibush Teitelbaum who was the son of the Volover Rebbe of America and was a dominant figure in the Volover Rebbe’s kashrus organization, one known for its pristine standard (he was there to help with Kosher-Supervision)

 

·       Mrs.  Norma Schwartzberg Rabinowitz who was planning to make Aliyah to Israe-l, on Monday

 

·       Mrs.  Yochved Orpaz who traveled to visit her daughter Ayala and her two grandchildren

 

·       Rabbi Ben Tzion Korman (or spelled at other places as: Chroman), HY”D who was a Mashgiach (he was there to help with Kosher-Supervision as a Kosher-Superviser) for the Volover Rebbe of Boro Park Shlita. He is survived by a wife and three children, with the oldest being 3.5 and the youngest 3 months.

 

 

 

Boruch Dayan Hoemes!!!

 

 

 

May G-d, A-l-mighty, avenge the bloods of those holy individuals!!!

 

 

 

 

 

For NOW, we’d like to say a little:

 

As Rabbi Yehuda Krinsky said in his comments in the press conference (we are paraphrasing a small part of his comments at this time, (We’re in the process of finding the full report, and we will post Be’ezras Hashem, very soon) at  According to CrownHeights.INFO:

 

“…The correct greeting to comfort the mourners is: ‘Hamakom Yenachem Es-khem Besokh She-‘ar Avelei Tzion Virushalayim’ which means: ‘May the G-d, A-l-mighty, comfort among mourners of Zion and Yerushalayim!!!’…”

Rabbi Marvin Hier Calls Upon World to Confront Islamic terror after Attack at Chabad Mumbai

 

 

Among with other pure souls whose names are as follows were murdered, Hashem Yikom Damam (May G-d, A-l-mighty, avenge the bloods of those holy individuals!!!):

 

·       Rabbi Gavirel and his wife Rivkah Holtzberg, the Shluchim who ran the Chabad House

He is survived by a wife and three children, with the oldest being 3.5 and the youngest 3 months.

 

 

 

Boruch Dayan Hoemes!!!

 

 

The correct greeting to comfort the mourners is: ‘Hamakom Yenachem Es-khem Besokh She-‘ar Avelei Tzion Virushalayim’ which means: ‘May the G-d, A-l-mighty, comfort among mourners of Zion and Yerushalayim!!!

 

Today, Rabbi Mavin Hier of Simon Wiesenthal Center speaks today regarding the tragic brutal and barbaric MURDER of the many people INNOCENT at the following address:

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHeB81BbuYU

 

 

 

 

“… To the Terrorists: That 1 Cruz of light that eminated from that Chabad-House in Mumbai, has contributed more to humanity than your idealogy & your WHOLE way of life!  And the Jewish people whom you seek to destroy, Will STILL be here, LONG AFTER, You & Your Haters, have been deposited in the DUST-BINS of History, WHERE you BELONG!!!

 

 

Therefore, we say:

 

To Our dearest friends & family and the rest of the world:  “Know that those INNOCENT, PURE and HOLY Jewish Souls, Hashem Yikom Damam (May G-d, A-l-mighty, avenge the bloods of those holy individuals!!!) who were murdered for their Self-LESS acts of kindness, humanity and SELF-Sacrifice by those Lehavdil Elef-Havdalos, murderers shall NEVER BE Forgotten!!!!!!!”

 

 

“Hashem! Ad-Mosai???   (Until when?!?!?!  How much-MORE MUST we endure?!?!?!)”

 

 

“We WANT Moshiach, NOW!!!”

 

 

 

We are grateful to the G-d, A-l-mighty, by Divine Providence, made such a GREAT Miracle and that their baby son who has NOT even become 3 was saved by the maid and the cook, as they slipped-out of the building!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

There has been a Fund set-up by different organizations and individuals, so, if you’d like to contribute to this Jewish community relief fund, click here.”

It is a Miracle and by Divine Providence that their baby son who has NOT even become 3 was saved by the maid and the cook as they slipped-out of the building!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There have been some more names that we found, among the countless, other precious Jewish souls whose whereabouts are still unknown…

 

We ask that you continue your efforts of prayers for them and we ask you that you would Please say Tehillim (Psalm) Chapter 20 for (the English translation is on the bottom):

 

We still urge, EVRYONE to say Tehillim for the rest of the Jewish people finding themselves in the area which G-d forbid, may still, Rachamana Litzlan be in the harm’s way in other places in the world:

1. For the conductor, a song of David.

 

 

 

 

2. May the L-o-rd 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.

 

 

 

 

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.

With GREAT heartache and sadness, we have been informed through many NEWS agencies that as for now, it SEEMS like the Shluchim of the Rebbe, Rabbi Gavriel and Rivka Holtzberg (the emessaries of the Lubavitcher Rebbe to Mumbai in India), have been murdered by the vicious murderers.


Boruch Dayan Hoemes!!!


May G-d, A-l-mighty, avenge the bloods of those holy individuals!!!

According to CrownHeights.INFO, the NEWS piece is as follows:


Boruch Dayan Hoemes – Shluchim Rabbi Gavriel and Rivka Holtzberg OBM


Rabbi Gavriel and Rivka Holtzberg, the beloved directors of Chabad-Lubavitch of Mumbai, were killed during one of the worst terrorist attacks to strike India in recent memory.


Jewish communities around the world reacted with shock to the loss of the couple, who were killed Thursday at their Chabad House during an apparent standoff between Indian military forces and terrorists.


Their toddler son, Moshe, managed to escape with his nanny some hours before Indian commandos stormed their building, known as the Nariman House, in the popular touristy neighborhood of Colaba. The Associated Press reported that the boy was unharmed, but was wearing blood-soaked pants.


Levaya information will be posted as soon as it becomes available.

Boruch Dayan Hoemes”.

Baruch Dayan Emet. Hashem Yekon Damom.

“Hashem! Ad-Mosai??? We WANT Moshiach, NOW!!!”


It is a Miracle and by Divine Providence that their baby son who has NOT even become 3 was saved by the maid and the cook as they slipped-out of the building!!!

We ask that you continue your efforts of prayers for them and we ask you that you would Please say Tehillim (Psalm) Chapter 20 for (the English translation is on the bottom):


· Rabbi Teitelbaum (Aryeh Leibish ben Elta Nechama Maltshi)

· Rabbi Chroman (Bentzion ben Elka)

  • Moshe Tzvi Ben Rivkah (the Shluchim’s young son)

We still urge, EVRYONE to say Tehillim for the rest of the Jewish people finding themselves in the area which G-d forbid, may still, Rachamana Litzlan be in the harm’s way:


Therefore, we are, again, posting the Tehillim as follows:

We have found the following NEWS release which includes a short Obituary about the Shluchim to Mumbai, (A”H) on Chabad.org which we are sharing with you:


“As the day wore on Friday in Mumbai, with no resolution at hand to what is now called by local news outlets as India’s worst terrorist attack in history, people worldwide anxiously awaited word on the fate of Rabbi Gavriel and Rivka Holtzberg and others held hostage in their Chabad-Lubavitch center. Prayers continued around the clock, and a fund was established to help relief efforts in Mumbai at www.ChabadIndia.org.


Concurring reports indicated that at least one American rabbi and one Israeli rabbi, both kosher supervisors who had traveled to Mumbai on business, were in the Chabad House when suspected Islamic terrorists took the building by force Wednesday night local time. Other reports from news organizations and field personnel say that as many as 10 people could be in the Chabad House, not including anywhere from two to five gunmen.


The Holtzbergs arrived in Mumbai in 2003 to serve the small local Jewish community, visiting businesspeople and the throngs of tourists, many of them Israeli, who annually travel to the seaside city.


Gavriel Holtzberg, 29, was born in Israel and moved to the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn, N.Y., with his parents when he was nine. A prodigious student, Holtzberg was a two-time champion in a competition of memorizing the Mishnah, a compendium of rabbinical enactments redacted in the second century C.E.


He studied at yeshivas in New York and Argentina, and as a rabbinical student served communities in Thailand and China under the Summer Rabbinical Visitation Program run by Merkos L’Inyonei Chinuch, the educational arm of Chabad-Lubavitch.


His 28-year-old wife, born Rivkah Rosenberg, is a native of Afula, Israel. Chayki Rosenberg described her sister as dedicated to helping Jews.


She “gives lots of classes for women at the Chabad House,” Rosenberg told The Jerusalem Post.


Friends described her as always having a positive outlook and a kind word for everyone.


Two years ago, the Holtzbergs raised funds to purchase the current location of the Chabad House, a five-story building in Mumbai’s Colaba market area known as Narimon House. They operate a synagogue, teach Torah classes, provide drug rehabilitation services, and host scores of people for weekly Shabbat meals. A trained ritual circumciser and slaughterer, the rabbi also conducts weddings for local Jewish couples.


The last word heard from the couple came in the form of a phone call the rabbi placed to the Israeli Consulate shortly after the beginning of the attacks. The line went dead in the middle of the conversation. Based on the accounts attributed to the nanny who escaped to safety with the Holtzbergs’ toddler son Moshe, the couple and at least two others were believed to be unconscious.


Shots Fired at Chabad House

Beginning in the early morning Friday, Indian commandos began a full-fledged assault on the Chabad House, with troops airlifted in by helicopter while snipers trained their sites through windows from locations surrounding the building. Footage broadcast by IBN, CNN’s affiliate network in India, showed a person waving what appeared to be a Jewish prayer shawl from a mid-floor window after the military assault began.


As of 3:30 p.m. local time, the military was reported to be in control of the upper two floors of the building and working their way downward. Numerous shots and apparent grenade explosions rang out throughout the day.


News reports placed the death toll in the crisis at more than 125, with more than 327 people injured. The attacks began when suspected Islamic terrorists came ashore near the Gateway to India monument carrying plastic explosives, grenades and machine guns and quickly fanned out to a restaurant, the Chabad House, several luxury hotels, a hospital and two train stations.


On Friday morning, the Associated Press reported that Lt. Gen. N. Thamburaj held a press conference about security operations aimed at retaking the hotels and the Chabad House.


“It’s just a matter of a few hours that we’ll be able to wrap up things,” said the general.

Tehillim (Psalm) Chapter 20

Tehillim (Psalm) Chapter 20



Please say Tehillim (Psalm) Chapter 20 for (English translation on the bottom):

  • Gavriel Noach ben Freida Bluma

  • Rivkah bas Yehudis

  • Moshe Tzvi Ben Rivkah

We have found a Statement by Rabbi Yehuda Krinsky on the Situation in Mumbai, India on Chabad.org which we are sharing wth you:

“The terrorist attacks on populated centers in Mumbai (Bombay) India are an outrage to all civilized nations and peace-loving people. Our Chabad-Lubavitch Jewish Community Center, located in Nariman House in the Colaba district, has been under seige for more than 24 hours, and is still occupied by the terrorists.


As of Thursday (Nov. 27) evening, we have not yet heard from our representatives in Mumbai, Rabbi Gavriel and Rivka Holtzberg, who head the center. The Holtzberg’s 18-month old son, Moshe, was rescued early Thursday morning and is in the custody of trusted friends.


Chabad-Lubavitch World Headquarters, through its global contacts, continues to vigilantly monitor the situation as it develops.


In these attacks, terrorists targeted foreign nationals, underscoring the need for governments to work collectively to fight terrorism resolutely and effectively, so that the hands of those seeking to destroy life and disrupt peace will no longer reach their targets.


We pray for the speedy, safe release of all the hostages and those yet missing, and for the healing and complete recovery of all those wounded. We express heartfelt condolences to the families and loved ones of each of those who have been brutally murdered in this senseless barbaric attack.”


— Rabbi Yehuda Krinsky, Chairman: Educational and Social Services arms of the Chabad-Lubavitch Movement


We still urge, EVRYONE to say Tehillim for the rest of the Jewish people finding themselves in the area which G-d forbid, may still, Rachamana Litzlan be in the harm’s way:


Therefore, we are, again, posting the Tehillim as follows:


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 L-o-rd 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.

According to CrownHeights.INFO (which claims that the Shliach’s son is Baruch-Hashem, SAFE, ALTHOUGH, there is ONLY a little we know of the Shliach & his wife!!!):


“MUMBAI, India [CHI] — CNN just reported that an Israeli rescue team known as “Zaka” is heading to Mumbai along with the parents of the Shlucha, they added that its believed that there are 2-3 gunmen inside the Nariman House Chabad House and 4 hostages including the Shliach, his wife and two guests.

Moshe, son of the Shluchim, was rescued by a cook when she chanced on an opportunity to flee the building.

MUMBAI, India [CHI] — NDTV is reporting that 7 people were confirmed to have been released from the Chabad house, also known as the Nariman House, and the identities of those released were not immediately known.

Earlier NEWS had said:

MUMBAI, India [INN] — Muslim terrorists in Mumbai reportedly have abducted Chabad Rabbi Gabriel, his wife Rivka and their two small children. Indian television reported that six Israelis are being held hostage.

The Foreign Ministry has not confirmed the report, and its last official statement was that no contact has been made with them. It added that 20 Israelis are missing since the terrorist attack Wednesday night.

Indian media reported that a couple and their teenage son, none of them Israelis, were killed in the Chabad House, called the Nariman House. One terrorist also was killed. Gunfire occasionally has been heard from the building, which the army has surrounded.

At least 101 people, including five terrorists, have died since the attacks began, and 600 others have been wounded. The terrorists have held more than 250 people as hostages in the Chabad House, a hospital and luxury hotels.

Several other Israelis have maintained telephone contact from their eight floor hotel rooms. The Chabad website reported that “the situation is grim.” Commando forces have arrived by sea and are battling the terrorists in an effort to rescue the hostage victims.

The sophisticated terrorist attacks, the worst ever in Mumbai and India, hit nine locations as Mumbai is involved in elections. The terrorists struck with automatic weapons and grenades.

And furthermore, earlier, according to CrownHeights.INFO, it seemed:

MUMBAI, India [CHI] — Reports coming from India; Police commandoes are trying to retake the Chabad House and have managed to injure or kill one of the terrorist inside. It is unknown if there are hostages or their condition at the Chabad House.

The Shluchim are still missing. Please continue saying Tehillim for Gavriel Noach ben Freida Bluma, his wife Rivka bas Yehudis and their son Moshe Tzvi ben Rivka.

There are many minyonim getting together to say Tehilim at 770 and the Ohel.
