Well it took Daniel Freidmann a while, but he finally got something important passed - a bill that both curtails the Supreme Court's ability to nullify laws except for laws that clearly conflict with the Basic Laws and even then only with a 2/3 majority of the Supreme Court judges vote. And of course, it grants the Knesset the ability to void the Supreme Court nullification with an absolute majority vote.

Simultaneously, it actually makes it into a law that the Supreme Court has that ability, a power that the Supreme Court previously took upon itself with no basis under law.

The beginning of Checks and Balances.

Now he has only around 5 more important laws to pass before this government collapses.
