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 correspondent Tal Schneider and United States correspondent Jacob Magid join host Amanda Borschel-Dan on today’s episode.

Schneider briefs us on the final coalition agreements that have been signed and what ministries Sephardic religious party Shas has received, even as its leader Aryeh Deri is still barred from being a minister.

We hear of Ashkenazi ultra-Orthodox party United Torah Judaism’s 100-some demands in an appendix to its coalition agreement — among them, barring the Women of the Wall from prayer at the Western Wall.

The US’s second gentleman, Doug Emhoff, convened a roundtable discussion yesterday on the subject of antisemitism. Who attended and what came out of this event?

How is the future opposition shaping up its campaign against the incoming government’s proposed changes? Schneider discusses this weekend’s upcoming “overpass protests.”

We hear what came out of the J Street confab that took place this week. The headlines surrounded remarks made by US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, but that’s not the full story.

Likud inks deal with Shas, finishes doling out government posts to coalition allies

Haredi party said to demand law banning all non-Orthodox prayer at Western Wall

At White House antisemitism roundtable, Doug Emhoff laments ‘epidemic of hate’

Blinken: US will judge the next Israeli government on policies, not personalities

With Biden cautious on new Israeli gov’t, Dems at J Street ready to take gloves off

I joined The Times of Israel after many years covering US and Israeli politics for Hebrew news outlets.

I believe responsible coverage of Israeli politicians means presenting a 360 degree view of their words and deeds – not only conveying what occurs, but also what that means in the broader context of Israeli society and the region.

That’s hard to do because you can rarely take politicians at face value – you must go the extra mile to present full context and try to overcome your own biases.

I’m proud of our work that tells the story of Israeli politics straight and comprehensively. I believe Israel is stronger and more democratic when professional journalists do that tough job well.

Your support for our work by joining The Times of Israel Community helps ensure we can continue to do so.

Thank you,
Tal Schneider, Political Correspondent
