Daily Briefing Jan. 5: The UN and its anti-Israel bias; NY’s Haredim vs. the NYT

Political correspondent Jacob Magid and US reporter Luke Tress discuss resolutions against Israel and its relations with Russia, and yeshiva education in New York

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.

Political correspondent Jacob Magid and US reporter Luke Tress join host Jessica Steinberg for today’s podcast.

Magid discusses the UN Security Council emergency meeting regarding National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir’s visit this week to the Temple Mount.

Tress looks at another recent UN resolution against Israel and the many condemnations of the United Nations against Israel over the last year.

Magid talks about the trip being planned for US national security advisor Jake Sullivan and what the Biden administration is thinking about with regard to Israel and its new government.

He also briefly discusses US Senator Lindsey Graham, usually a friend to Israel, and his warning against the new government remaining quiet on Russia’s war in Ukraine.

Tress discusses ultra-Orthodox group Agudath Israel and its protest against The New York Times’ coverage of yeshiva education that is sharply critical about the lack of secular studies.

Discussed articles include:
