Godspeed to Rivka and the Rabbi, held hostage in Mumbai jihad rampage

Posted on: November 28, 2008

Some forty hours on,  the count of the dead keeps rising in India, it now stands at 125.  Several locations in the southern-most tip of Mumbai (Bombay) are still under control of fedayeen terrorists. Combing operations continue, and happily, citizens continue to be rescued against a background of gun fire and explosions. And sadly, more valiant members of the Indian commandos fall in the line of duty.

{I thank the great blog Atlas Shrugs for some of the information and links in this post.}

Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg and wife Rivka,  are still being held hostage by the cavemen, at what is called the Nariman House, a community center for the Mumbai’s small Jewish community. Indian Airforce helicopter dropped commandos on to the roof of the building, firefight ongoing.

Ms. Atlas has this picture at the head of her indomitable blog, Atlas Shrugs. It shows prayers being offered at the Western Wall in Jerusalem for the safety of the young rabbi and his wife.


In the midst of all this horror, small miracles continue to bear testimony to the Sacred and the Holy.

While the Rabbi and wife Rivka are reported to be hurt, unconsious, their 2 year old son Moshe is alive, spirited out of there cleverly by a babysitter.

The babysitter, a local woman, called the family shortly after the siege began, and accompanied the little boy to the home of the Israeli Consulate’s security officer, where both are awaiting his grandparents, Rabbi Shimon Rosenberg and his wife Yehudit who are expected to arrive from Israel [sic]

The Hebrew names of the Chabad emissary and his wife who are being held hostage are: Gavriel Noach ben Freida Bluma and Rivkah Bas Yehudis. Chabad Headquarters has asked for prayers to be said for their safety invoking their Hebrew names.  Israel National News

INN has details about the condition and the whereabouts of the Israeli citizens and Indian Jews who have been targeted by the cavemen. They also have this photo of the young Chabad couple.

 The dark details of the dastardly attack, their demented reasoning and other sordid information continues to trickle out.

I fully and wholeheartedly share in the sentiments expressed by Atlas:

“Terrorism” the big lie used to club the minds of free men into confusion. This isn’t terrorism. This is war, holy war.BTW, ever hear of Jews killing imams? (not that that matters, right) [sic]

I will say it again for the umpteenth time. This ideology must be crushed not appeased, not gently spoken of.

Atlas earned our love with the marvelous ‘Great Reverse Schlep’in answer to Sarah Silverman in Florida during the recent election. Hail Atlas! And Godspeed to Rivka and the Rabbi, and all souls in distress at the hands of the evil cavemen.


The Wonder of Life continues, as little Moshe completes his second year, the day after it is found that his dear parents have indeed been killed in the fedayeen attack. Blessings to him for a long and meaningful life. 

My prayers for the peaceful passage of all the souls that perished at the hands of those evil menl in Mumbai this week. May they rest easy. Let there be comfort and aid to those who have been left behind.

Not cyclones, nor typhoons. Neither earthquakes nor tsunamis. No since September of 2001 have I felt this much pain, this much anger.

Cavemen, crawl back into your hole, leave us alone!

Say Psalm 20 for their speedy and safe release! Sandra – she is a cook there – is a real hero for saving the Rabbi and Rebbetzin’s son! May G-d bless her!

I was also a supporter of McCain/Palin!

Chaya from Israel (originally N.J.)

    Home from commercial fishing grounds in Bristol Bay, and here's Piper helping slay salmon to market! A good season for wild reds on the Nushagak, Piper hopes to make enough to cover, maybe, a cell phone bill.

  • It Takes a Village... to Slay a Salmon July 3, 2013
    The beauty of catching some of our Alaskan species with fins is the amount of meat harvested with each fish. Rod and reeling red salmon, or, my favorite, a big (or even not so big) halibut ensures you've got a few dinners taken care of even when feeding a bunch of people.We had a blast hauling in halibut in Homer a few days ago, despite the cold rain an […]
  • Commemorating the 150th Anniversary of Gettysburg June 30, 2013
    Today marks the beginning of the week-long ceremonies commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. There will be a full re-enactment of the battle, discussions with panels of historians, and of course a re-reading of the Gettysburg Address. But as Lincoln affirmed when he dedicated that hallowed ground, nothing we say or do can “add or de […]

    If you missed President Obama’s State of the Union address last night, you didn’t miss much – especially if you watched any of his past four State of the Union addresses. We heard the same recycled rhetoric, and we heard his Orwellian declaration that the cornucopia of new federal programs he proposed, as well as his intention to eradicate world poverty, wou […]

    Best wishes to everyone for a happy New Year! In the coming days there will be a great deal of debate about the goings-on in the political arena and the shenanigans in Washington.

  • Actress Allison Williams: ‘My Dad Would Have Voted for Obama a Third Time’ November 25, 2017
    Where does acting end and reality begin? In a movie now in rotation on HBO, actress Allison Williams, the daughter of MSNBC anchor Brian Williams, declares: “My dad would have voted for Obama a third time if he could have. Like, the love is so real.” Sounds perfectly plausible that such sentiment would apply to her real life father, the disgraced ousted anch […]
