This video [01:42], produced by the Israel Project, an American educational organization committed to informing global media about Israel, explains in brief how the Knesset, the Israeli parliament, functions. The Knesset is comprised of one legislative body, which has been meeting in Jerusalem since February 9th, 1949. Israeli citizens elect the parties they want to represent them within the legislative body, which is made up of 120 members. The Knesset passes all laws, supervises the government, elects the president, and approves the cabinet.
