CROWN HEIGHTS - Friends and family are preparing to say goodbye to a Crown Heights couple killed in the Mumbai terrorist attacks.

The bodies of Rabbi Gavriel Noach Holtzberg and his wife, Rivka, are being flown to Israel and will most likely be buried Monday. Their 2-year-old son escaped unharmed amid the bloodshed at the Jewish center where his parents were killed.

The couple led an outreach center in Mumbai, India, where they had been living for the past five years. The attacks claimed nearly 200 lives and ended Saturday morning after Indian police killed the last gunman.
