Last night (Motzei Shabbos) at a Sheva Brachos for R’ Levi Wolvovsky, in Milan, Italy, R’ Hillel Dovid Krinsky, spoke. R’ Krinsky was one of the organizers of the “Chanuka Live” program, which broadcast live Menorah lightings in locations such as Jerusalem, Moscow and Paris.
R’ Krinsky related, “During the broadcast in 5752 the Rebbe spoke about broadcasting from Calcutta, the capital in the west of India, and the largest city in the country. While the Rebbe spoke those words, the camera moves and focuses on a child. That child is Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg HY”D.”
R’ Krinsky also mentioned that the next year it was planned to broadcast from Calcutta as well, for some reason the plans fell through and it did not take place.
