New Delhi:

Moshe Holtzberg (Baby Moshe), the Israeli boy who survived 26/11 terror attacks, arrived in Mumbai on Tuesday to revisit the site with the Jewish state Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Moshe was two years old when his parents Gabi and Rivka Holtzberg were killed in 2008 Mumbai terror attacks. He was saved by his Indian nanny.

Baby Moshe and his family were in Chabad House, a Jewish cultural centre in the western Indian city of Mumbai where terrorists shot both his parents.

During his second visit, Moshe was accompanied by his grandfather Rabbi Holztberg Nachman who said Mumbai has become safer after the 2008 terrorist attacks.

“It's a very special day. Thank God that Moshe could come again. Mumbai is a lot safer now,” said Rabbi Holztberg Nachman, Grandfather of Moshe Holtzberg.

Moshe was invited by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to visit India during his Israel visit last year. He is a part of the delegation of Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu who is on a six-day visit to India.

Moshe is expected to revisit the Jewish cultural centre in Mumbai where his parents were killed and unveil the ‘living memorial’ on January 18 along with Israeli PM.
