Gafni Request Knesset Beit Knesset to Be Expanded

This picture depicts the overflow from the shul of the Knesset into the hallway. As you can see, MK Gafni couldn't make it into the shul either..
Gafni request Knesset Beit Knesset to be expanded
The Knesset has a small shul. As I heard on the radio, the increase in number of religious MKs and parliamentary assistants and other people who work in the building, have caused the shul to be small and inadequate. They used to get about 15 regular daveners, and now an average tefilla brings in 30-35 people, with sometimes many more. And on a special event, such as the tefilla last week for the abducted boys, it was extremely inadequate.
To that end, MK Gafni (UTJ) has requested from the Speaker of the House Yuli Edelstein that give orders to expand the Knesset Beit Knesset. Gafni says that on a normal day there are people davening in the hallway outside the shul because it is too full.

I like it. I am happy to see so many more religious people participating, in whatever way, in goverance, in the Knesset. I hope it continues to grow. I guess it is a good thing we don't have a separation of shul and State here in Israel...
