Nariman House of Mumbai

<span class=

Nariman House is the place for Chabad of India - a Jewish organization that provides social, educational, and religious programming for all. Mainly a Jewish outreach program. The building also houses a hostel.

The center is run by Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg - a young Rabbi who grew up in Brooklyn, NY. It is a home away from home where all backpackers,Business man, tourist and visitors socialize in a comfortable home-like setting with great friends, great food and great discussion. Plenty of young tourists from Israel stop by here before leaving for Goa or Rajastan.

Nariman House was seized and attacked during the recent terrorist attacks on Mumbai. This has to be a planned attack on the building as it is a difficult building to locate. Terrorists did not just stumble into this place. It appears that the Rabbi and his wife have fallen victims to this this cowardly act.
