Shabbat Menu - Zaatar Flat Bread


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!
