Since the Constituent Assembly and the First Knesset are unable to put a constitution together, the Knesset legislates basic laws on various subjects. The Eleventh Basic Law of Israel is passed by the Thirteenth Knesset on March 9, 1994. The law lays down the right of “every citizen or inhabitant to engage in any occupation, profession or trade” unless “a law which corresponds with the values of the State of Israel, and which was designed for a worthy end” determines otherwise. The law includes an instruction regarding its permanence and protection from changes by means of emergency regulations. Only a majority of the Knesset members can amend the law.
