THE BRONX - The Jewish and Indian communities of the Bronx are feeling the losses of the terror attacks in Mumbai, India this week.

More than 150 people have been killed and at least 370 have been injured. One of the terrorists' targets was the Chabad-Lubavitch center, an Orthodox Jewish organization. The center's organizers, a Brooklyn rabbi and his wife, are among the casualties.

Rabbi Zalman Teitelbaum is encouraging everyone to contribute to a campaign of kindness in memory of the slain couple.

The Indian community is also reeling.

Farhan Zaidi, a student born in India with family still in the country, says people outside India's borders are experiencing fear.

"People are very scared," says Zaidi.
