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.
Diplomatic correspondent Lazar Berman and Diaspora affairs correspondent Judah Ari Gross join host Amanda Borschel-Dan on today’s episode.
We begin by hearing why the Foreign Ministry summoned UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Tor Wennesland yesterday.
We hear about Berman’s recent trip to the Gulf with President Isaac Herzog. Did it meet its goals? And how was the kosher food?
Gross just returned from a trip to Moldova where he spent time with Mark Dovev, who works with an organization called Nativ. What is happening on the ground with Ukrainian immigration to Israel?
Far-right Noam head Avi Maoz has historical and current connections to Nativ and the struggle for Soviet Jewry. We hear how he fought alongside Natan Sharansky for decades.
