CHABAD HOUSE (Nariman House, Colaba)
The building, known as Nariman House, was home to a Chabad House, a Jewish Orthodox outreach centre run by the late Rabbi Gavriel Noach- Gabbi (1979-2008) and Rivkah - Rivky (1980-2008) Holtzberg, who had moved to India in 2003 and owned the building since around 2006.
A Chabad House, is a Jewish outreach centre was established to facilitate traveling Jewish businessmen and tourists, offering classes, lectures, and workshops on Jewish topics; religious services; Shabbat meals; and special events.
Chabad House was attacked on 26 November 2008 and six of its occupants, including Rabbi Gavriel and his wife, who was six months pregnant, were killed. Their two-year-old son Moshe, survived the attack after being rescued by his Indian nanny, Sandra Samuel.
In 2018 the Nariman House was renamed Nariman Light House. After a long period of renovation, the Chabad House reopened its doors in 2014, resuming all its previous functions and preserving a special section of the building to operate as a memorial site and a museum, exhibiting the horrors of the sad
and dramatic event.
