Rugelach

On Fridays, you can smell the distinct aroma of rugelach on every street corner in Israel.

Shakshouka (Egg in Tomato Sauce)

A Sephardi favorite. No Middle Eastern restaurant menu is complete without it, though Hungarians also delight in this dish with the addition of lots of paprika. Leshakshek means "to shake" in Hebrew. Every cook from North Africa has his or her own personal version of this egg and tomato dish.

Shishlik

Simsemiyeh (sesame seed candy)

It is traditional to make foods with nuts and seeds on Purim since this was Esther’s main diet as she lived in the King Xerxes’ palace while trying to hide her Jewish identity. Jewish tradition says she chose to eat only kosher food, and so instead of eating unkosher meat and chicken, Esther lived on vegetarian foods.
