Deep architectural symbolism, more than two thousand years history of justice (from the Ancient Jewish - through the Ottoman and British - to the contemporary Israeli), free access to the hearings - and all that explained freely by the local professional guide in several languages (just make sure you arrive in time). Strongly recommend to make yourself a "bundle" -... 更多
Make reservations in advance. Have a tour guide explain the system, the architecture and the number of No-jewish judges that work in this remarkable system. After your visit, go to any neighboring countries and compare the justice system. I am sure your perception will change. You´d be surprised !
We attended an English tour, and our tour guide (a Belgian optician) was engaging and interesting. She provided background about the beautiful architecture and various symbolic meanings, and led us to view a hearing in session. She was able to give us some information about the Israeli justice system, as well as some interesting anecdotes.
We really appreciated the architecture, which reflects the phiosophy. This place is certainly a must for a first visit to the Eternal City. Besiedes, it is possible to enter a room where actual hearing is taking place. It is in Hebrew but the guide can explain afterwards.
A very special building designed by the brothers Karmi . Open for visits of the public free of charge. You can enter the hearings freely (in Hebrew). Very recommended.

Fascinating. We ended up in the museum where we saw a moving exhibit on the Eichmann trial including prosecutor Gideon Hausner's opening statement. It has to... 更多

I just visited [again, after several years] this building- I wonder if this its appropriate definition... can be concept, idea... a place where the stone gets life under the incredible blue sky of Jerusalem, life because under the appearance of a [still life] perfect building, the system works and secretaries, lawyers and judges are working while visitors feel they are... 更多
You will get to understand the Israeli judicial system and how the architect planned every aspect with historical and biblical motifs and meaning. Beautiful place. Only downside is that there is only one English tour a day and limited space.
