This visit for Moshe is very emotional and sensitive as he lost his parents here. But the concept of the Living Memorial speaks to how we can constructively think and talk about those nights, not by focusing on the circumstances of death, but on the prospect of continuing life.

Last year, Rosenberg had requested the Indian ambassador to Israel that the Nariman House building be registered with the land registry department as belonging to Moshe. The two innovation nations must come together to define the future, " said Israel PM Benjamin Netanyahu at India-Israel Business Summit. "Bahut khush" (Greetings, I feel very happy)", as they stepped out around 8 a.m. "The people of Israel are living and will live forever", he said. "I could see Moshe's excitement, he kept smiling through the journey", he said.
