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.
US correspondent Jacob Magid and senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur join host Jessica Steinberg.
Rettig Gur discusses the government’s surprising announcement about its plans for the 2023 budget and what that says about the positioning of the coalition.
Magid offers some more details about the Nancy Pelosi-led mission to Israel last week, including highlights of the Democrats’ meetings with politicians and Palestinian Authority officials.
He also offers a deeper dive into Israel’s plan to expand a national park near the area of the Mount of Olives onto partially church-owned lands and Christian holy sites, which was put on hold after Magid broke the news in a story in The Times of Israel.
