India Jewish community wants to rebuild Mumbai center

India's Jewish community, thrown in the spotlight after it was targeted in the Mumbai attacks, will rebuild the damaged Chabad-Lubavitch center, the group's country head said on Monday.

Nariman House, which was nearly destroyed in a siege that killed 171 people in Mumbai, including the centre's Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg and his wife Rivka, will be rebuilt and opened again shortly, Dov Goldberg said.

"We are very determined to rebuild because the activities of the Chabad-Lubavitch have to continue and we cannot let this attack stop that," he told Reuters.

They would assess the damage as soon as police hand over custody of the building, Goldberg said.

"We will rebuild on the same site for now, and will look to expand the center and its activities," he said. "Certainly, we will have maximum security."
