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 political correspondent Tal Schneider and senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur, along with host Raoul Wootliff.
On today’s show, we look at the first moves of the new government and what they say about the sea change in Israeli politics that it represents. What messages is Prime Minister Naftali Bennett sending so far and how is he trying to differentiate himself from Benjamin Netanyahu?
Then, in what state did Netanyahu leave the Prime Minister’s Office? We look at the allegation that the former PM destroyed key documents and what he may be trying to hide.
And we analyze the recent statements and moves of others left out of the new coalition – the ultra-Orthodox parties. What are their considerations moving forward?
