This first picture is a test of your Israel knowledge.
No guessing. Either you know what it is or you don't.

OK, here are the boys mixing a little za'atar and a little salt and twisting shut the pieces of paper (sometimes newspaper) into a tiny bundle.

He is always at the Jaffa Gate.
Even my toddler granddaughter knows how to dip her bageleh in za'atar before each bite.
