Daily Briefing Sept 13: The way the right’s Krembo crumbles and a new ToI docuseries

Senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur predicts who’s the politician to watch, plus filmmakers Eiv Kristal and Natan Odenheimer on why they’re hopeful after filming in Ramle-Lod

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.

Senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur and special guests filmmakers Natan Odenheimer and Eiv Kristal join host Amanda Borschel-Dan on today’s episode.

With a multitude of politicians, from MKs Ayelet Shaked to Yoaz Hendel to Yisrael Beytenu head Avigdor Liberman, anointing themselves as the embodiment of the right, Rettig Gur takes a stab at the burning question: Who actually represents the so-called “normal” right these days?

The Times of Israel has just released the third installment of the Into The Land series with “A Tale of Two Cities.” The 20-minute documentary is about Ramle and Lod, mixed cities with about a fifth Arab Israeli residents. The film presents two very different models for Arab-Jewish coexistence in the aftermath of the riots of May 2021. We hear from filmmakers Natan Odenheimer and Eiv Kristal.

And finally, the iconic Krembo dessert is set to get a price hike. Could this be the rallying cry for the next major cost of living protest?
