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.

Political correspondent Tal Schneider and environmental reporter Sue Surkes join host Jessica Steinberg for today’s podcast.

Schneider discusses how presumptive prime minister-elect Benjamin Netanyahu will handle the Democrat-heavy results of this week’s US midterm elections, given the far-right emphasis of his new government partners.

She also looks at the issues and topics being debated with Netanyahu’s coalition partners, including the Law of Return, subsidies to yeshivas, Jewish identity and rolling back on LGBTQ rights.

Surkes reports from Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt, site of this year’s COP27 United Nations Climate Conference, where Israel is hosting a large delegation and promoting its climate technologies.

Discussed articles include:

Herzog heard on hot mic saying ‘entire world’ anxious about Ben Gvir
