    Baby Moshe was lucky to have survived the incident because of his nanny, Sandra Samuels who was in the house when the terrorists attacked but she managed to hide in a room even as his parents were gunned down. As soon as she saw an opportunity, Moshe’s nanny emerged from the room and found him crying standing between the dead bodies of his parents. She grabbed him and left the building, according to a PTI report. (AP)

    Moshe’s grandparents, Rabbi Shimon Rosenberg in an interview today said, “Moshe is excited and emotional. We all are. We attach a lot of importance to the visit of Modi to Israel and his deciding to meet us.” He added, “We all are here at Jerusalem from Afula to meet the Indian prime minister. This meeting is very important to us as the prime minister, who represents 125 crore Indians, has shown a desire to meet Moshe and us.” (Twitter/@MEAIndia)
