    The bullet holes from Mumbai’s terror attack, which happened eight years ago this month, still mark a small wall in the Chabad House where six people lost their lives.

    Next to the wall hangs a photographs of two of the victims, Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg, 29, and his wife Rivka, two Israeli emissaries from Chabad who had opened the center in a five-story apartment building off a crowded street in 2006.

    On Monday evening, Israeli President Reuven Rivlin lit a candle in their memory, his last act before leaving India after an eight-day trip.

    “Terror will never win,” he said, as he stood at a wooden podium, surrounded by dozens of reporters.

    Rivlin recalled how the Holtzberg’s son Moshe, then two, had been saved by his Indian nanny, Sandra Samuel, both of whom now live in Israel.

    “We will never forget her bravery,” Rivlin said.

    He recalled how in a recent visit to his Jerusalem residence Moshe, now ten, had told him “the Jewish people live.”
