Most Heartbreaking Read of the Day


From The Hindu/Press Trust of India:

A Jewish congregation dissolved in tears in a synagogue on Monday at the grief of a two-year-old orphan who cried out for his father — a Rabbi — and mother slain by terrorists at Nariman House amid emotional scenes during a memorial service.

Two-year-old Moshe dressed in a bright green T-shirt and blue shorts was carried into a synagogue here for a prayer meeting in memory of the six Jews killed in the terror attack that included his parents Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg and Rivika.

Holding a ball in hand, Moshe who was ironically orphaned on the day of his birthday (November 28) kept looking around, probably wanting to see his parents even as his 44-year-old nanny Sandra Samuel lifted him up in his arms.
