Daily Briefing Nov. 30: Anti-Israel UN vote has PM Yair Lapid looking for pen pals

Diplomatic correspondent Lazar Berman on looming resolution, Grain for Ukraine program; features writer Renee Ghert-Zand on Nazi sterilization, Rothschild women & new Newman memoir

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.

Diplomatic correspondent Lazar Berman and features writer Renee Ghert-Zand join host Amanda Borschel-Dan in today’s episode.

Yesterday marked 75 years to Kaf Tet B’November, November 29, 1947, when the UN General Assembly voted in favor of a resolution that adopted the plan for partitioning Eretz Israel. Currently, Israel is facing a vote on a damning resolution that will come to the General Assembly plenary at some point in December. Berman updates us on how Israel is fighting it so far.

Earlier this week, Berman wrote about the possibility of Israel joining the Grain from Ukraine program. What’s actually happening here?

Ghert-Zand discusses a study by University of Ottawa researcher Dr. Peggy J. Kleinplatz that suggests that the Nazis attempted to sterilize Jewish women in camps through the delivery of a hormonal food additive. What triggered the study and what was found?

There is a new Paul Newman memoir 14 years after his death. What were some of the revelations in it?

And finally, we hear about a new book that delves into a series of overlooked historical figures, the Rothschild women.
