Visitors to the Knesset on Thursday may have noticed the noise of construction breaking the silence of the parliamentary recess. Work was going ahead on the legislature's first-ever souvenir shop. Though the tender for an operator has yet to be issued, visitors will soon be able to buy a mug, key chain, T-shirt or maybe a hat or tie with the Knesset symbol or an image of the building. The shop will also sell books and albums that tell the story of the Knesset, whish sat first in Tel Aviv and then in Jerusalem. Copies of the Independence Scroll will be sold, as well as posters with images of Knesset speakers, other political figures, and foreign leaders who have addressed the plenum.
