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.
