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.
Editor David Horovitz and diplomatic correspondent Lazar Berman join host Amanda Borschel-Dan.
Israel again experienced a terrorist shooting last night, this time near Jerusalem’s Western Wall. Horovitz brings updates.
This morning, we hear that former IDF top general Gadi Eisenkot and former religious affairs minister Matan Kahana are joining ranks with Blue and White head Benny Gantz. Does this boost Gantz’s chances?
Berman is back in Israel following several weeks in Ukraine. He tells us about a Holocaust survivor who is again displaced by war and previews other upcoming pieces.
International media was flooded with headlines over the weekend about the stabbing of author Salman Rushdie as he prepared to give a lecture in upstate New York on Friday. Berman explains it’s not the first attack surrounding the controversial author. Do we expect the stabbing to affect the Iran nuclear talks in any way?
And Horovitz tells us about a “pasta Nazi” who is working out of Tel Aviv’s Florentin neighborhood.
