In memory of Rabbi Gavriel & Rebbetzin Rivkah Holtzberg HYD - Shluchim to Mumbai, India*
If you are sure that opening the institution in that location will be successful although there will be opposition to it, do it. This is your people will stand up to “battle” for you. If you don’t have people who’ll come out in your favor then it’ll only cause more divisiveness and don’t open it in that location.
