In this week’s parsha, we learn that when the metzora (person afflicted with leprosy) heals, he or she undergoes a purification ritual by the kohen that includes two birds, spring water, cedar wood, a scarlet thread and hyssop.  For those unfamiliar with hyssop, it is a versatile, flavorful and aromatic herb that is used to make za’atar, the green spice blend popular in Israel and the Middle East.  This week we celebrate hyssop with a menu that highlights zaatar. I promise it will put a zing in your Shabbat menu!

    That looks so good!

    Just one question though, how is one supposed to prepare all that for Shabbat when one is supposed to refrain from cooking? *such dilemma*
