On Monday evening, November 17, 2010, over 100 people gathered in Rechavia, to comemorate the tragic murder of Rabbi Gabi and Mrs. Rivki Holtzberg 2 years ago, in Mumbai, India.
The event, which was held in the prestigeous “Yeshurun” Shul, was very moving.
One of the highlights was when Reb Gedalia Schreiber, the president of the shul, spoke exceptionally warmly about Chabad and the tremendous Mesiras Nefesh of the Shlichus empire worldwide.
He also recalled very fondly a Yechidus that he had with the Rebbe some 30 years ago, as the head of the Misrad Hadatot.
Ad-el Rimun, who was a back-packer in India 2 years ago, and spent only a few hours together with Gabi and Rivki, only the day before the attack on the Chabad House. His original plans were to be in the Chabad House the next day, but miraculously and unexpectedly, his flight was changed to Tuesday night.
He spoke of the strong impression that Gabi and Rivki made on his life, forever.
The diverse crowd left inspired and encouraged to add in their Torah and Mitzvos, and to increase in their acts of their own Shlichus, in memory of Gabi and Rivki.
The event was organized by the new Shliach to Rechavia, Rabbi Yisroel Goldberg.
