In Melbourne Shabbat begins Fri 3 Apr 2020 06:52 PM and ends Sat 4 Apr 2020 07:50 PM

A Call to Synagogues in Melbourne

ז' כסלו ה' אלפים תשס"ט

The COSV and RCV propose that during the Synagogue service on this forthcoming Shabbat it would be appropriate to commemorate the names of our Kedoshim who were recently massacred in Mumbai.

No doubt each congregation has its own particular way of responding to such tragedies for example through recitation of Kel Molei Rachamim or other expressions of sorrow.

We have been able to ascertain some of the details of the victims' names:

Rav Gavriel Noach ben Nachman Holtzberg
Rivkah bat Shimon Holtzberg
Rav Aryeh Leibish Teitelbaum
Rav Bentzion Kruman
Yocheved Orpaz
Norma Schwartzblatt-Rabinowitz

May the Almighty grant the bereaved families and K'lal Yisrael comfort in this time of sorrow and sadness. May the sacrifice of their lives encourage us to greater devotion in our own lives and may we all merit the ultimate redemption through Moshiach Ben David


Rabbi Philip Heilbrunn                                              Mr Moshe Trebish

Vice President RCV                                                    President COSV
