Over the past few years, while his parents and younger brother resided in the Chabad House in Mumbai, Dov Ber had been hospitalized at a nursing institution in Israel under the care of his grandparents. The funeral will begin at 10:00am at the Shamgar Funeral Home, with burial will taking place on the Mount of Olives, next to his parents and his older brother Menachem, who died from the same genetic illness. Moshe is the only Holzberg son not to be born with the illness.
