Ministers of Knesset returned on Monday from their 39-day Spring Recess to begin the Knesset’s Summer Session. Two special sessions were held during the break.

The fifth sitting of the 18th Knesset will start on October 15, 2012, after an 81-day Fall Recess, if the Knesset completes its upcoming fourth sitting.
