Daily Briefing Nov. 29: How Shas’s Deri can get a top job; Trump’s dinner guests

Political writer Tal Schneider dissects latest Knesset wrangling; US correspondent Jacob Magid looks at Biden’s attitude toward incoming coalition and Trump’s dinner guests

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 writer Tal Schneider and US correspondent Jacob Magid join host Jessica Steinberg for today’s podcast.

Schneider discusses the ongoing coalition-building process, including efforts to enable Shas party leader Aryeh Deri to return as a senior cabinet minister despite his recent suspended jail sentence, and more about the extremist one-man political party Avi Maoz of Noam and his imminent “Jewish identity” responsibilities.

Magid talks about how the Biden administration will handle the new government, given the president’s long-standing ties with incoming prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who will have to carefully manage his coalition members vis-a-vis the US.

He also comments on former US president Donald Trump’s dinner with Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, and known antisemite Nick Fuentes.

Discussed articles include:
