Official invitation to the Constituent Assembly, H. February 1949

An official invitation by the Provisional State Council to a constituent assembly signed by the first Chairman of the Knesset Yosef Shprintsak. Sent to Member of the Constituent Assembly Esther Raziel February 7, 1949.

"In accordance with section 2 (a) of the Transition to the Constituent Assembly, 1949, we are honored to invite you to the opening meeting of the Constituent Assembly, which will be held on Monday, 15 B'Shvat (February 14, 1949) at 4 p.m., at the National Institutions Building In Jerusalem. Yours sincerely, Yosef Spryneck, Chairman, on behalf of the Provisional State Council President."

The Constituent Assembly was the first elected body in the State of Israel, whose function was to establish the constitution of the State of Israel. The assembly was set for election to the Constituent Assembly on January 25, 1949. The Declaration of Independence stipulated that the Constituent Assembly would establish a constitution for the state by October 1, 1948, under which the "elected and regular authorities of the state" would be established. In fact, the Assembly first convened in Shvat 15  1949 (February 14, 1949), and within only two days decided to change its designation from a constituent assembly to a legislature called "the Knesset."
