I left Israel the other day for a quick 24 hour business trip. On my way out, after passport control before going down the ramp to duty free, there is one more security check, where your passport/ticket are examined (or a piece of paper is given in).
The checker spoke as follows to the people in front of me:
To tourists visiting Israel: "Thank you for visiting, we hope you had a great trip"
to the Israeli teenager: "Have a fun time abroad!"
to my business colleague: "Shana Tova, Gmar Chatima Tova" (A good year to you)
to me: "Gmar Chatima Tova...Tzom Kal" (A good year...and have an easy fast [yesterday was a minor fast day])
