Mumbai Relief Fund Names Director

Chabad Lubavitch Headquarters, NY

( International Committee members of the Mumbai Relief Fund under the auspices of Chabad Lubavitch Headquarters named Rabbi Avraham Berkowitz of Mosocw, Russia, to serve as its director. 

Rabbi Berkowitz will lead the campaign to perpetuate the legacy of Rabbi Gavriel and Rivka Holtzberg and share the inspiration of their dedication to Jewish life and values universally. The Fund aims to rebuild the Chabad center and to secure lifetime support for the orphan, Moshe Holzberg.

Berkowitz served for the last ten years as the Executive Director of the Federation of Jewish Communities of the CIS.

"We are confident that under Rabbi Berkowitz's directorship, the mission that Gavriel and Rivka Holtzberg devoted their lives to, will find enduring continuity," said Rabbi Yehuda Krinsky, Chairman of the Chabad-Lubavitch social and educational services, and a member of the Fund's board.

"The concerns of this Fund are dear to the hearts of so many who have been touched by the dedicated service of the Holtzbergs' and their precious little boy," he said.

Rabbi Berkowitz will be working closely with the international board members of Fund and the worldwide network of Chabad-Lubavitch emissaries.
