Rapaport Press Release

The Rapaport Group and Rapaport India express our sincere condolences to the many victims of this week’s terrorist attacks on Mumbai.

We deeply mourn the loss of all the victims and especially our good friends, the Rabbi of Mumbai Gavriel Holtzberg and his wife Rivkah, who were murdered in their synagogue. We note the exceptionally courageous leadership of the staff at the Taj Mahal Hotel, our home away from home.

We express our shock and profound grief over the brutal and murderous attack on innocent children, women and men. We recognize that this attack is not just against the people of Mumbai and our international community. This is an attack against the fundamental values of democratic, free and fair society in Mumbai and in the entire world. Importantly, this was an attack against the spirit of Mumbai.

The Rapaport Group pledges its support for the spirit of Mumbai and we will continue to expand our offices and presence in Mumbai. We will continue to support the Mumbai diamond industry through these challenging times.

The Rapaport Group thanks G¬D that all of our 40 team members in Mumbai have survived the attacks safe and sound. We thank our friends who called in their support and we acknowledge the great courage of all those who took part in the brave and difficult rescue operations.
