Mumbai Chabad to Open Museum to Victims

Mumbai Chabad to Open Museum to Victims

(JTA) — Mumbai’s Chabad Jewish center, where six Jews were killed in 2008, will open a museum.

A small memorial and educational center will be opened at the five-story complex, the French news agency AFP reported.

The fifth floor of the building reportedly will be set up the way it was when Chabad emissaries Rabbi Gavriel and Rivkah Holtzberg and their son, Moshe, lived there, according to the report, citing the Mumbai Mirror newspaper. The bullet holes will be left as well.

In January 2008, 10 Pakistani terrorists directed a series of attacks that left 166 people dead, including the six at the Mumbai Chabad house, which was targeted along with luxury hotels, a train station and a popular cafe.

A temporary Chabad house is in operation in Mumbai during the reconstruction of the original house.
