Sandra Samuel: Rightous Among the Nations

Sandra Samuel, the nanny who saved Moshe Holtzberg in Mumbai will be given Israel's highest honor to those who are not Jewish, "Righteous Gentile." Normally, an honor like this in Israel is reserved for those who saved Jews during the Holocaust; however, Israel moved along the process, which usually takes months, made the exception and will honor her with the title as well as planting a tree in her honor among the "Garden of the Righteous" as Yad Vashem. This will enable her and her co-worker Jackie to live in Israel with Moshe at a secret location in Israel.

Here is a CNN Interview they did with Sandra Samuel about what happened in the Chabad House.
