Welcome to The Times of Israel’s Daily Briefing, your 15-minute audio update on what’s happening in Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish world, from Sunday through Thursday.

Times of Israel Diplomatic correspondent Lazar Berman and Diaspora Affairs reporter Judah Ari Gross join host Amanda Borschel-Dan on this special episode focused on the crisis in Ukraine.

Berman explains what is happening with the thousands of Israelis left in the war-torn country and how they can still get out.

Gross tells us how listeners can help and what various Jewish organizations are doing now. He relates what he heard yesterday in conversations with Ukrainian Jews.

We also speak about the Nazi imagery being bantered about by both sides of the conflict. Where does this coming from and why is it rearing its head now?

And finally, some 26 Ukrainian Birthrighters are stuck in Israel. The Jewish mother in all of us wants to know if they have a place for Shabbat.
