  • Just the entry to this "House of Power" is an experience in itself. Coming from a "peaceful" land like New Zealand to be exposed to the severe security requirements in Israel demonstrates the pressure...  more »

  • Got to see Netanyahu through the glass ♡. Wish I knew Hebrew, then I could understand what they were all saying and arguing about ha.
  • Awesome experiance really worth the trip excellent tour guides very intresting and entertaning.
  • With less lobists and less dealing with its own members salary, this parlament could be more productive and more citizens pro. This Institute and its members doesn't give any good example in the last yers. It is a shame that more and more of its members get incarcerated or expelled due to misbehavior. I sure hope that better days ars ahead. Good luck.
  • Very cool building. I was fortunate enough to get a tour and sit in on some meetings.
  • Make sure you get there while in session otherwise you've got nothing to see there.
