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.
Knesset correspondent Carrie Keller-Lynn and reporter Amy Spiro join host Jessica Steinberg for today’s podcast.
Keller-Lynn reviews Wednesday’s Knesset session, as Likud members argued among themselves and with coalition members about a bill for academic scholarships for newly released IDF soldiers.
Spiro discusses her feature looking at the Haredi community six months after the Chaim Walder abuse scandal broke, researching whether anything has changed in the ultra-Orthodox community.
She also talks about next week’s planned exhumation of a grave, the long-awaited next stage in the decades-old Yemenite children affair, in which the Israeli government after the establishment of the state is accused of kidnapping Yemenite children for adoption by Ashkenazi families.
