Ultra Orthodox Jewish men attend the funeral on December 2, 2008 of Arieh Levish Teitelbaum, of one of the six Israeli victims of the Mumbai terror attacks. The funeral was held in Jerusalem’s religious neighborhood of Mea Shearim. Wailing and chanting psalms, thousands of people bid a final farewell today to the Jews killed in last week's bloody Mumbai attacks. Their bodies, along with the survivors,the Indian babysitter and 2 year old Moshe, the son of the Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg and his wife Rivka, killed in the attacks, were flown to Israel on an Israeli Air Force plane for burial. Doctors from the hospital in India said the victims from the Chabad House were brutally and unspeakably tortured.
