Following Michal's email, I just want to update that the Knesset, the
Israeli parliament, released the story out earlier this week. Here is their
press release (in Hebrew): http://main.knesset.gov.il/News/PressReleases/

This unique collaboration was shared on many official Facebook pages, among
* The Knesset: https://www.facebook.com/TheKnesset/photos/a.
* The Ministry of Justice:
* The Governmental Freedom Of Information Unit:
* Wikimedia Israel:
and Public Knowledge Workshop:

>  Hi all,
> Together with the Public Knowledge Workshop[1], a non-profit organization
> whose mission is to release public information, we signed a Declaration of
> Principles with the Israeli Parliament regarding the Open Law Book project
> on Wikisource[2]. This project began in 2004 and is an initiative to make
> all the laws and regulations passed by the parliament accessible to the
> public in a clear and reliable manner. Recently, the Israeli Parliament
> launched the National Legislation Database, which contains all information
> and data regarding the state's laws. In the  collaboration agreement signed
> between the three stakeholders, it is agreed that the Nationals Legislation
> Database will include links to the corresponding information in the Open
> Law Book, while vice versa the database may freely use any information from
> the Open Law Book. This collaboration will allow the public to have the
> most up-to-date information in a clear and understandable way, and thus
> also increase the transparency of legislation in Israel. This
> groundbreaking achievement is an example to the kind of impact that open
> knowledge initiatives can have on civil life.
