    I think the main thing missing from the list is Grilled Meat! I’ll make sure to take some pictures and post my secret recipe for Israeli Grilled Chicken Wings, Moroccan grilled kebabs, and my “can’t have a BBQ without the pitas, grilled pitas”. As in israel Yom Hatazmaot could be called national BBQ day, all of Am Yisrael takes to the parks, beaches and backyards for a day full of grilled protein!

  2. Great list. I’m sharing now. Happy Yom Haatzmau!
