Barry, you might want to be more specific in your question.  But generally, what I did was to buy about 20 Mountain House meals from a camping supplier in the States, and that took care of dinner for 20 days.  For breakfast I had instant oatmeal, and lunch was sardines and fruit and bread, all available at shops in Israel, in towns, kibbutzim, moshavim, wherever.  You can buy a great variety of food along the trail, particularly in the north.  In the south you have to plan more, or carry more.

Thanks.  I guess I will buy what is available.  To be more specific, is it posssible to purchase freeze dried meals along the trail?  Is it recommended to bring fuel and a small burner for the dessert (which I plan to do)?

Freeze dried food is not available.

Please ask your second question in a new thread. (See the forum rules). Thanks.

So it's not even possible to buy Mountain House type dehydrated meals in the big camping stores in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem?

No.

For a ~635 mi hike (5-6 weeks) with so many places to buy food on your way, it is not really necessary.
The longest strech without food store near the trail is slightly over 50 mi.

Not a problem, the food in Israel is good so I won't starve but dehydrated meals would be lighter and more convenient in the south so I'll probably bring some with me and send a mail drop to Mitzpe Ramon and Shaharut.

50 miles isn't too far, I usually walk 40+ km a day so that's less than two days if I'm converting correctly (I'm not used to miles).

I love pitta with the sliced meat you get in Israeli supermarkets, very tasty and can never get enough shawarma or felafel.

Do you have any food recommendations on things I can get in a supermarket / grocery store that will be good for evening meals when I need to carry 2-3 days food when I'm south of Arad?

Buy in a supermarket what you like / what they have.
