Tune in Sunday through Thursday to hear ToI editors and reporters quickly catch you up on what’s important today

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.

Today’s panel comprises editor David Horovitz and health and science reporter Nathan Jeffay, along with host Amanda Borschel-Dan.

Barring any last-minute upsets, Israel’s Knesset is poised to vote in its 36th government this afternoon. What is meant to happen today — and what could still go wrong?

We hear about a historical last-minute government crash from the 1990s that has gone down in history as the “Stinking Maneuver.” Could history repeat itself?

Next, we hear about a blitz of new COVID research, including a promising Israeli oral vaccine, a one-dose shortcut for youth and a possible way to beat the cytokine storm

And finally, the future is now with no-needle blood tests that will soon be used in space.

Discussed articles include:
