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.
Today’s panel comprises Times of Israel founding editor David Horovitz and Science and Health correspondent Nathan Jeffay, along with host Amanda Borschel-Dan.
Jeffay speaks about the Israeli health system, which has exceeded expectations with the Startup Nation becoming “VacciNation” in the past several weeks as swaths of the population are inoculated. The data gathered in Israel serves as the largest clinical trial in the world for the vaccination and its influence on further spread of the pandemic.
To cap the program, Horovitz discusses the recent interview he conducted with the former head of the Anti-Defamation League, Abe Foxman. Readers have had a mixed response to Foxman, a provocative thinker who speaks his mind openly.
