Moshe and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will unveil a memorial to the victims of the 26/11 attacks at Chabad House on Thursday.

Moshe was two years old when his parents, Rabbi Gabriel and Rivka Holtzberg, were killed in the attacks. 

Moshe was saved by his Indian nanny Sandra Samuel and was later handed over to his maternal grandparents, who had rushed to Mumbai even as the attack was unfolding.

164 peope died in the Mumbai attacks and over 300 were injured. Nine of the attackers were killed while Ajmal Kasab, the sole attacker to be capture, was hanged in 2012. 

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had also met Moshe during his visit to Israel last year.
