Trying for ages to get an appointment to file for CRBA so I can get an ss# for my kids but no availability. I tried Tel Aviv and they gave me an appointment in May. Is that what ppl are doing? Waiting 5 months?

No, I have dual US/Israel citizenship but I wasn't born there. A lot of ppl are telling me they are having the same problem. There aren't enough appointments.  What can be done about it?

Why don't you make a fake ticket ( or a real ticket and cancel) - (Obviously before you do it ask your LOR)?

It's a sheila of geneivas daas for sure and anyway I'm not making a passport. I only need a consular report of birth to get a ss# for my kids so I can file my tax return so I can get my refund. I pay taxes every month to the US bec. I work for a US org. So my taxes they are getting, but my refund at this rate I can wait the better part of a year. It looks like I'm being penalized for living in Israel that I have to wait 5+ months to get an ss# for my kids. What can I do?

I don't know if they're responding to emails but maybe contact the state dept and/or SSA and see if they have any ideas for you.
