What was the first law legislated by the Knesset? How are United Torah Judaism and Shas different? 
Knowing the right answers is the only way to win Monopolity, the new educational game developed by the World Zionist Organization in time for their Thursday Israeli Emissaries conference to be held in Warsaw, Poland. 
Participants must answer trivia questions about Israeli politics, engage in debates about the core-issues dividing Israel society and fulfill tasks if they are to win points, which translate into Knesset seats. 
The tasks include planning a protest matching the platform of the party the players play for in the game, submitting a bill to Knesset or locating posts on social media that relate to the values of their party. 
Chair of the World Zionist Organization's Department for Diaspora Activities, Gusti Yehoshua Braverman said that "the upcoming elections are a fantastic opportunity, we realized, to understand the political and value mosaic Israeli society is composed of." 

The first law legislated by the Knesset? It was the law of transition – meaning that the Knesset is the legislative body in the State of Israel. And while both United Torah Judaism and Shas are haredi parties, the first is Ashkenazi and the other Mizrahi.
