A-Z Challenge: K is for Knesset

The Knesset - Israel's Parliament

The Knesset is the name for Israel’s parliament. The name means gathering or assembly. The same word is used in the Hebrew term for a synagogue.

The current Knesset building was inaugurated in 1966. There is so much information about it that it’s hard to pick out anything in particular. The Chagall mosaics and tapestries, the seating arrangement for the 120 members shaped like a lamp, the Eternal Flame, the gates made of iron and steel ….

I’m taking a short break. Back soon with L for Light.

I’m loving your pictures for the A to Z Challenge posts! I took several thousand pictures over my three trips to Israel and had photo essays for the first two trips on my old website. On my future fourth trip, I’ll need to spend much more time there to take even more pictures instead of being rushed along and forced onto a group schedule.

A group might be good for a first visit, but now that you’re a veteran I’m sure you’ll manage without one. Is your old website still available to see?

No, the website was unfortunately deleted (long story), but I managed to save almost a thousand of my files from caches in the following weeks. Most of the pages of my photo essays were among what I salvaged.
