Daily Briefing May 30 – Are times really a-changin’ with a Lapid-Bennett deal?

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 senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur, along with host Amanda Borschel-Dan.

Nothing is finalized as the clock winds down on Yesh Atid head Yair Lapid’s chance to form a coalition. With the June 2 deadline looming, will Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s new offers to Yamina head Naftali Bennett and New Hope head Gideon Sa’ar be enough to torpedo the nascent “change” government?

The shloshim, or month of formal mourning, for the 45 victims of the disaster at Mount Meron is observed today. Why is there still no formal state inquiry — and why are the ultra-Orthodox parties the ones that are most vehemently objecting to one?

Danielle Wolfson, 43, became the first Israeli woman to summit Mount Everest last week. She used her platform to call for coexistence while reminding the world that anything is possible.

Discussed articles include:
