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 health reporter Nathan Jeffay join host Amanda Borschel-Dan in today’s episode.
We begin the show by hearing highlights from last night’s Qatar World Cup final and how the host country was inclusive of Israelis — to a point.
Israeli President Isaac Herzog sent a Hanukkah video message to the Diaspora. Any strong statements here?
Horovitz discusses a recent op-ed he wrote about possible threats to the Law of Return from the incoming Netanyahu coalition. What makes him concerned?
We hear from Jeffay about new Israeli research that spotlights major benefits of stress reduction measures, specifically for women who are at elevated risk of cancer.
Some 15 percent of the world’s most influential studies on COVID-19 vaccines were written by Israeli scientists. No shock here?
And finally, we hear about another piece of research from Tel Aviv University in which Israeli scientists say they have found a way to boost the ability of bones to heal themselves.
