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.

Senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur and news editor Amy Spiro join host Amanda Borschel-Dan on today’s episode.

Who was Ohana really speaking to?

Calls for compromise on the judicial overhaul are coming from all sides of the issue. How sincere are they?
