Ukraine’s chief rabbi and his team came under fire on Thursday, June 8, as Russian shelling was reported in the city of Kherson during evacuations from flooded areas along the Dnipro River.
In footage he posted to his social media account on Thursday, Rabbi Moshe Reuven Azman is interrupted while giving an update, and seen ducking for cover as shells land nearby.
He had been speaking on camera about bringing a special vehicle to help evacuate civilians from the flooded right-bank areas of Kherson after the Nova Kakhovka dam collapse.
Writing about the near-miss on social media, the rabbi said: “miraculously survived. Details later.”
