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.

Today’s panel comprises United States correspondent Jacob Magid and political correspondent Tal Schneider, along with host Raoul Wootliff.

On today’s show, we hear how Israel is asking the US for assistance on the Sheikh Jarrah situation. How can the Biden administration help? And should it?

We follow up on the appointment of Michael Herzog as Israel’s ambassador to the US. Can he help reset relations?

Did the Abraham Accords help in the recent Gaza war, and a year after their signing, do they create a new diplomatic reality for the Jewish state?

We check in with the race for head of the Jewish Agency now that its former head Isaac Herzog has moved to the president’s office.

And finally, who is Idit Silman, the coalition’s chief whip tasked with pushing the new government’s agenda through the Knesset?

Discussed articles include:

Israel asking US to push Palestinians toward compromise on Sheikh Jarrah
