Within a week of the attacks, Chabad had raised about $1 million through mailboxes it had opened on—one for helping to raise Moshe, the Holtzbergs’ 2-year-old son who escaped the attack on the Chabad house, and one to help rebuild the Chabad of Mumbai, which was damaged badly by explosions and gunfire during the terrorists’ siege and attempted rescue by Indian Special Forces.

Such publicity and fund-raising efforts in the wake of tragedy may strike some as crass, if not inappropriate and offensive.
