The Supreme Court of Israel is an imposing building. It is not far from the Knesset. The Court is open for inspection at 12 noon every day, with commentary in English. Israel is a secular State, and the Supreme Court is the superior court in the State of Israel. Israel is also a Jewish State, even though some 20% of the population are Muslim and Christian. The Supreme Court is an affirmation that Israel is governed by the rule of law.

After strolling around the grounds surrounding this impressive structure, we joined the daily 11 AM free guided tour in Hebrew. (There is also one in English at 12.) Besides my friend and me, our group was totally composed of young women on maternity leave. I have run into this phenomenon at other sites in Jerusalem so was not surprised by the baby carriages. nTheir presence set the tone for the entire tour. At the end, our guide bade farewell to the nursing mothers and took us two for a special treat: the courtyard of arches that echoes lines and details of the Alhambra's courtyard of lions which I have never seen but know from art books.nEspecially with all the babies and a fantastic guide, this tour was very worthwhile.

The building is beautiful and the architecture is meaningful- past vs. Present, outdoor vs. Indoor, and lines vs. Cyrcle. You can visit the court room during a hearing, you can walk through the library and do not miss the little museum describing the evolution of the hebrew law since the bible period till today. You can walk to the rose garden and you see the kneset in view. Totaly worth it.
