STATEMENT BY RABBI YEHUDA KRINSKY

ON THE SITUATION IN MUMBAI, INDIA

For Immediate Release

(LNS, NY) Once again, terrorism has reared its evil head, this time in Mumbai (Bombay) India . Our Chabad-Lubavitch Jewish Community Center, located in Nariman House in the Colaba district, 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 Rivkah 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 this tragic situation as it develops.

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
