ToI podcast

Zman Yisrael editor Biranit Goren and senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur dig into the controversial legislation being discussed by the High Court today; Goren on docuseries ‘The One’

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.

Zman Yisrael editor Biranit Goren and senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur join host Amanda Borschel-Dan in today’s episode.

The High Court of Justice is hearing petitions demanding it annul a controversial piece of government legislation that blocks the ability of the court and the attorney general to order the prime minister to recuse himself from office. Our guests break down what this legislation is and dig into its deeper meaning.

Goren tells us about a four-part public broadcasting documentary series on the Yom Kippur War that delves into the fighters of Squadron 201. According to its program notes, the series presents new testimonies of pilots and navigators, who stand for the first time in front of the cameras and in frank monologues deal with the open wound left by the war. She tells us why it gave her goosebumps.

Discussed articles include:
