"The members of the Yemeni community who are faithful to religion and tradition see the Knesset Israel as the solid foundation for building the national home.
background: The Knesset was the general organization of the Jews of Israel during the British Mandate. Founding of the organization after the beginning of the British Mandate, April 19, 1920. At that time, the elections were held for the first Assembly which declared itself "a supreme institution for arranging the public and national affairs of the Hebrew people in Israel and with its only internal and external power". The National Assembly elected the National Committee, which was the executive branch, and recognized the World Zionist Organization as "responsible for the questions related to the establishment of the National House." The organization (the Knesset = the Assembly of Representatives and the National Committee), which included most of the Jewish community in Palestine, with the exception of the ultra-Orthodox, was only recognized by the Mandate authorities on December 29, 1927. The ultra-Orthodox circles opposed this organization, mainly because of giving women suffrage and demanding the establishment of an organization. Another that represented the ultra-Orthodox public. The organization was chaired by the Assembly of Representatives and the National Committee. The Israeli Knesset was subject to the Chief Rabbinate headed by the two Chief Rabbis, the Ashkenazi and the Sephardi. They were also subject to the committees of the communities. The Knesset is idle with the establishment of the state and most of its powers are included in the state's responsibility. The State House of Representatives is also called the Knesset.
