Chabad of India Trust, a nonprofit organisation for Jewish community centre that was struck during the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks causing lives of around 176 people. During the attack the entire world stopped to watch the horrific scenes and this has made a very big impact on India.
2 of the 10 terrorists took siege of our building Nariman House which lasted for 3 days and resulted in death of the founder of Chabad of India Trust, Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg and Ms. Rivka Holtzberg together with 4 of their Jewish guests and one brave NSG commander who killed during the rescue efforts.
The Holtzbergs' 2 year old son baby Moshe was rescued by his Indian nanny Sandra Samuel who was granted Israel citizenship in respect of her heroic act.
In September 2014, the building was partly renovated and resumed for community activities. The Trust has decided to dedicate a substantial part of the building to create Memorial and Museum to remember all the 176 people and also learn from this terrible tragedy the importance of tolerance and coexistence to prevent such incidents to happen ever again.
The Nariman Lighthouse Memorial was inaugurated last November marking 10 years to the 26/11 attack with the presence of the members of the victims, Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel Ambassador to India Ron Malka, US Congressional leaders and other dignitaries from various countries.
Note: The lift which goes up the venue can take 5 people at a time.
