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.

Military correspondent Emanuel Fabian and Diaspora and religion reporter Judah Ari Gross join Amanda Borschel-Dan on today’s episode.

A second victim from Wednesday’s attack succumbed to his injuries on Saturday, Tadese Tashume Ben Ma’ada. The 50-year-old immigrated to Israel from Ethiopia 21 years ago and leaves behind a wife and six children. Fabian updates us on the status of the manhunt and how on Saturday, police shut a main entrance to Jerusalem after a suspected pipe bomb was found near the Chords Bridge.

On Friday, the IDF suspended two soldiers who physically assaulted and taunted left-wing activists in Hebron, which is the latest in a series of incidents involving the Givati infantry brigade in the flashpoint West Bank city. What exactly happened here?

Early last week, Chief Rabbi David Lau asked the incoming government to revoke the so-called “grandchild clause” of the Law of Return, which grants Israeli citizenship to anyone with at least one Jewish grandparent who does not practice another religion. What are the chances of this happening?

Diaspora Minister Nachman Shai spoke with Gross last week and voiced several regrets. What are his parting words?

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
