Security is tight at the seat of Israeli government. We saw two cafeterias inside, including one dairy and one meat kitchen. The general assembly can be viewed when they are in session.

Your will to set up a tour in advance due to security concerns. When we were there we saw a plenary session, had a discussion with a member of the Knesset and learned about the democratic process in Israel.

Out Knesset guide was knowledgeable and nice. The building is interesting. The Chagall artwork is worth seeing. We got to see the Knesset in session. According to our tour guide, the session was relatively calm for the Knesset.
