Posted By on June 26, 2022

Welcome to The Times of Israels Daily Briefing, your 15-minute audio update on whats happening in Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish world, from Sunday through Thursday.

Political correspondent Tal Schneider and religion correspondent Judah Ari Gross join host Amanda Borschel-Dan on this politically driven episode.

Prime Minister Naftali Bennetts coalition held the first in a series of votes for its own dissolution this morning. But are elections now a 100% reality? Could former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu still somehow scrape together a coalition from the existing Knesset?

We talk polling. Who is in and who is out?

Gross shares what hes hearing from the ultra-Orthodox parties that have been loyal to Netanyahu this past year.

And finally, Sephardic Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef directed remarks against MK Itamar Ben Gvir in a recent sermon. Why?
