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.

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

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.
