Nariman House is also known as Chhabra Lubavitch Center. This five-storey building came into the news on 26 November 2007 after being captured by terrorists during a series of firing in Mumbai. The building is a center built to help Jews, where Jewish tourists also frequently stay. About 4000 couples who follow Chhabra-Lubavitch religion have opened Chhabra houses in 43 countries of the world. Young Chhabra-Lubavitch believers from many countries have arrived here after the couple who run Mumbai's Chhabra House were killed in a terrorist attack. In 2003, the newly married Holtsburg couple in Mumbai opened the first Chhabra House in Nariman House.
