One Year Later

A year ago, by the Hebrew calendar, Gabi and Rivky Holtzberg and four others in the Chabad House in Mumbai were killed by terrorists. A memorial service was held for them in Kfar Chabad yesterday. Moshe, their son, who was miraculously saved by the bravery of his nanny Sandra, had his traditional first haircut on the same day – as it was his third birthday.  (As a side note, only the Jerusalem Post reported on this anniversary – Ynetnews and Haaretz ingnored it. Perhaps they only pay attention to the Hebrew date of a memorial service when it suits their political agenda – mi sh’meyvin yavin.)

    …Can’t believe that YNet and Haaretz ignored it. What kind of Jewish media are they?!
