Is there anything that is hard to get or super-expensive in Israel?  With our friends in Egypt, they were always asking us to bring them dishes or pots and pans or electronics like mp3 players or boom boxes (yes. we brought an entire boom box and set of china in our suitcase one year).  Maybe you could get them a nice American pot like a calphalon pot (I think they’re Amercian) or a china serving set by an American designer.  Or salt and pepper shakers shaped like NY landmarks – I think they make like, empire state building ones and statue of liberty ones – those could be a fun way to "American" up a wedding gift.

there are a ton of places that sell vintage state dish towels that are so cute.  maybe you can buy them something like a place setting, or pitcher, and include the fun dish towels in the box? They will also serve as environmentally friendly packaging.

If you go with a cookbook, get measuring cups and spoons too. The rest of the works uses metric.
