Menorah outside the building

My wife and I visited the Knesset while touring Jerusalem in November, 2017. It was time well spent. Our guide, Isaac, was interesting and very informative.

There are many different tours available and it's also possible to attend a plenary session and see the knesset in action. I have and it's good to be able to understand the geography of the chamber, who sits where from the memshelah- government, to the opposition etc.
