Faith helps mourners remember slain rabbis

CROWN HEIGHTS - Those mourning two Brooklyn-raised rabbis who were killed in the India attacks say that faith is helping them through this horrible time.

Members of the Chabad-Lubavitch Jewish movement in Brooklyn say the deadly attacks will not allow them to shake their beliefs.

Terrorists stormed several sites in Mumbai, India last week and killed more than 170 people. Among the dead were Brooklyn-born Rabbi Liebish Teitelbaum, Crown Heights-raised Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg and Holtzberg?s wife Rivka. The Holtzbergs? young son was able to escape the attack on a Jewish center with a nanny.

Members of the Brooklyn community have already started a fund online to rebuild the Chabad house in Mumbai and help the Holtzberg family.
