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.
US political correspondent Jacob Magid and environment reporter Sue Surkes join host Jessica Steinberg on today’s podcast.
Magid reports from Las Vegas, where he covered the Republican Jewish Coalition’s annual leadership conference. Magid fills us in on who was there, what topics were discussed and whether Jewish Republicans are interested in having former president Donald Trump run again.
He also discusses the statement made at the conference by former US envoy to the United Nations Nikki Haley, who broadly criticized pro-Israel lobbying group AIPAC for hosting politicians who support the Iran nuclear deal.
Surkes offers highlights, concerns and the to-do list for countries following COP26, the climate change conference she covered in Glasgow last week. The challenges are tremendous, says Surkes, as countries have a mighty task ahead of them.
