Ahead of the second anniversary of the 26/11 attacks, the grandparents of terror victim baby Moshe are in Mumbai for a court hearing in connection with a dispute over rebuilding rights of the Chabad House, one of the sites which stands as a mute testimony to the Mumbai siege.
The paternal grandparents of Moshe, Rabbi Nachman Holtzberg and Freida and parents of Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg, killed during the 26/11 attacks at the Jewish centre are here for the court case as well as a small ceremony where they will pay homage to the victims," an official representing the family told PTI.
The couple arrived in Mumbai on Tuesday night for the scheduled hearing on Thursday. Currently, Chabad House (also known as Nariman House), is in the possession of a Receiver of the Bombay High Court following a dispute between two factions of the Jewish community. The dispute is between Gavriel's parents-- Nachman and Freida Holtzberg-- and Rabbi Yosef Kantor, over the rebuilding rights of the property.

The principal donor behind the renovation is Samuel Nitka, president of the GRH Energy group, the official claimed. On November 26, 2008, two Pakistani terrorists entered the the Jewish centre and killed six of its occupants, including Rabbi and his pregnant wife, Rivka. Their son Moshe, who was then two-year-old, survived the attack after being rescued by Indian nanny, Sandra Samuel.
