From the onset of the ongoing war in Ukraine, The Fellowship has been on the ground, helping Jewish people escape to safety in Israel, and providing assistance to those who remain. And this help would not be possible with so many heroes who have been our hands and feet, who have been your hands and feet, who have been the hands and feet of God, doing His holy work by caring for His people. This week, Yael welcomes one such unsung hero to discuss this holy work.

Since the beginning of the war, Ilia Golberg has been an instrumental partner for The Fellowship in rescuing Jews from war-torn Ukraine and in providing safety and lifesaving assistance to those who remain behind. Ilia shares with Yael how the landscape and Jewish communities have changed throughout the war — from those disbelieving that war would ever come to their country to those who are now returning so their children can resume their lives as best they can.

Listen now to this this inspiring conversation with this humble hero from the frontlines of war.
