LEST WE FORGET: Yesterday marked the date of the brazen terrorist act of Lashkar-e-Taiba, a Pakistani terrorist group. The attack in Mumbai, India, shook the world, India and its historic Jewish community. Yes, time stood still at 2120 hours on the night of Nov. 26, 2008 throughout Mumbai. It was one of the worst terrorist attacks in history in which 174 persons, including nine gunmen lost their lives. Included in the carnage were six Jews at Chabad’s Nariman House, among them, Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg and his wife, Rivka.
