Mumbai is lot safer now, says Moshe's grandfather on his arrival

Moshe was accompanied by his grandfather Shimon Rosenberg and his wife

Moshe now lives in Israel with his grandparents and is visiting Mumbai. Moshe had been scheduled to visit India when he turned 13 years old, but Narendra Modi sent him a personal invite during his tour to Israel last year.

She found the two-year-old crying next to the bodies of his parents; she picked him up and dashed out along with the Nariman House cook Zakir Qazi. Moshe Holtzberg, now 12, reached New Delhi on Sunday as part of the visiting Israeli delegation led by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He was then barely two years old.

Moshe Holtzberg's grandfather Rabbi Holtzberg said that he felt happy after coming to India and feels secure as compared to 26/11.

Sandra handed over Moshe to his maternal grandparents Rabbi Shimon and Yehudit Rosenberg.

Days later after the incident, a prayer meeting was held at Keneseth Eliyahoo Synagogue at Kala Ghoda where Moshe's cries "Imma" meaning mother, was the heart-melting moments in the aftermath of 26/11. There has been no drastic change on Moshe's personality or his characteristics after the attack, and he seems to be a normal child who survived one of the most harrowing experienced in his infanthood. She takes a bus to Afula to meet her son "Sonu" on Sundays. Organisers say it is "designed to educate and inspire people of all backgrounds to act for the betterment of themselves, their communities and the world".

Gavriel Holtzberg, 29, was born in Israel and moved to the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn, N.Y., with his parents, when he was nine.

His nanny, Sandra Samuels who saved Moshe during the attacks was awarded an honorary citizenship by the Israeli government.

The visit comes nearly six months after the young boy met Prime Minister Narendra Modi on July 5, 2017, and expressed a desire to visit the country.

For the first time since he left the country of his birth, the boy, now 11, will visit Mumbai today in the company of Netanyahu.
