Tuesday 2 May
Join us for a long day in Jerusalem for guided tours of the President’s Residence, the Supreme Court and the Knesset.
After an early start from Netanya, we begin our tour at the President’s Residence. We will learn about the history of the Office of the Presidency, the presidents of Israel throughout the country’s history, and their roles in shaping the nation. The tour emphasizes the vision of partnership in Israel’s diverse society as conceived by the country’s presidents.
Following a quick coffee break our bus will take us to the Supreme Court. Always in our headlines it is the final court of appeals in Israel and interprets laws enacted by the Knesset. It handles about 10,000 cases annually. Our guided tour will explain the magnificent architecture of the building, the history and structure of the Israeli legal system and the court.
Our late lunch stop will be either a picnic lunch in the Wohl Rose Park or bought at the Knesset cafeteria.
Our final tour of the day is at the Knesset, Israel’s house of representatives.
We will hear about the nature of Israeli democracy, the Knesset’s roles and responsibilities and the works of art displayed throughout the building. The tour visits the Knesset Committees Wing, the Plenary Hall, Chagall Hall, and the exhibit of Israel’s Declaration of Independence.
