"His visit with Israeli Prime Minister will be to unveil our Living Memorial project to commemorate and remember all the names of all the victims of the 26/11 attack", Kozlovsky told the media.

Moshe Holtzberg, who was one year old when gunmen killed his mum and dad, Chabad-Lubavitch emissaries Rabbi Gavriel and Rivka Holtzberg, went to India with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to help open a memorial in their honour. On Wednesday he is to travel to Gujarat, Modi's home state, before heading to Mumbai where apart from meeting members of India's tiny Jewish community he will also meet with top business leaders.

Moshe arrived on Tuesday morning from Tel Aviv and landed at the Mumbai airport at around 8.15 am.

During his Israeli visit previous year, PM Modi met Moshe at that time and invited him to come to India. "He wants to thank Prime Minister Narendra Modi", said Moshe's grandfather Shimon Rosenberg.

Moshe's parents had moved to Mumbai seven years before the attack to work at the Chabad House.

Moshe Holtzberg's grandfather Rabbi Holtzberg said that he felt happy after coming to India and feels secure as compared to 26/11.

Moshe's cries for his mother - "Imma (mother)" - during a special prayer service held days later at Keneseth Eliyahoo Synagogue at Kala Godha was among the most heartrending moments in the aftermath of 26/11. Moshe now lives in Afula, around 90 km from Jerusalem, with his grandparents.

"The memorial remembers all the victims of the terror attack, not only the Jewish victims".

During his Mumbai tour, Moshe said he would visit the Chabad House and pray there.

Let's find out who is Moshe Holtzberg and more about this 11-year-old kid.

Moshe is reportedly keen to see Chabad House and wants to visit Gateway of India as well.

Samuel has said she found Moshe standing crying over the bodies of his parents and grabbed him before fleeing the house to safety.

"Moshe definitely has a huge emotional bond with India and Mumbai".
