Israel Diamond Exchange to Hold Memorial Service for Victims of Mumbai Attacks Avi Krawitz Posted: 12/10/08 03:29

RAPAPORT… The Israel Diamond Exchange (IDE) has scheduled a memorial service for victims of the Mumbai terror attacks. The service will take place in the exchange at 4 p.m. today, Wednesday, December 10. India’s ambassador to Israel, Navtej Sarna, will attend the ceremony, as will family members of Rabbi Gavriel and Rivka Holtzberg, the Chabad emissaries killed in the attacks.

In a notification for the event, IDE president Avi Paz stressed the strong relationship that has developed between the Israeli and Indian diamond communities. “Israelis work on a continual basis with many Indian diamantaires, and they are an inseparable part of our exchange,” Paz said. “These deadly terror attacks have cost a heavy price to both nations and unite us in this difficult hour.”

The attacks of November 26 claimed the lives of nearly 200 people, among them six Israelis, including Rabbi Holtzberg and his wife, who were well known for their hospitality toward Israeli diamantaires visiting Mumbai. IDE said it expects hundreds of Israeli diamantaires and Indians living in Israel to attend the service.
