Dan's post describing his experience

After signing up for a Travel.gov account, it takes about 2.5-3 weeks for the invite to be able to renew online.

@Dan
DDMS worthy? Most people aren't aware that they have to request expedite to receive it on time.

Message from J-lem embassy this morning.

Quote
Message to U.S. Citizens:  U.S. Embassy Jerusalem (June 6, 2023)

Location:  Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza

Subject:  Introduction of Israel Post Courier Pre-Paid Labels

Beginning on June 5, Israel Post began a new system for U.S. citizens to create pre-paid labels for the return of their U.S. passports and/or Consular Reports of Birth Abroad.  All applications submitted on or after June 12 that are being delivered back to the applicant by Israel Post will be required to include the pre-paid label with the application.  This applies to those who submit applications in person and to those who mail them in or submit them in the drop box.

The new cost of the courier service from Israel Post is 60 NIS.  If renewing in person, you must print the confirmation page before your appointment and include it in the package of documents you submit at the interview.  To start the pre-paid label process, click here or use the QR code below.

If you are renewing by mail or drop box (in either Jerusalem or Tel Aviv), you must print the confirmation page and include it with the documents you submit.  The Consular Section will no longer have pre-printed delivery slips from Israel Post.  When the passport is ready, the U.S. Embassy will pass all documents directly to Israel Post for delivery.  Israel Post will then contact you by SMS to arrange delivery or you can check online via the Israel Post website.

The cost of the courier service from Aramex from the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem remains the same (50 NIS).  If using Aramex, you will still fill out the courier slip at the time of your in-person appointment or when you drop off the passport.  When the passport is ready for delivery, the courier will contact you for payment and delivery.  Courier delivery fees are paid directly to the courier company.  The courier will either deliver your documents directly to you or call you for pickup at one of its distribution centers.

Pick-ups are only for emergency, limited-validity passports.  There is no option for pick-up of non-emergency, limited-validity U.S. passports.

Was the birth certificate sent back together with the passport or beforehand?

Getting a passport is messed up; at least in NYC.
You need an appointment at an acceptance facility (public library).  The website page isn't easy to find, and although not hard to use, is hard to navigate.
Appointments are a month away or later.
After your appointment, the processing time is:
Routine: 10-13 weeks*
Expedited: 7-9 weeks and an extra $60*
So the fastest a person can get a passport is 3 months after deciding to get one.
Unless you go the "emergency" route.  Call for an appointment for travel within 2 weeks.  Go to an office in the city or another state.
Or use an expediting service for $100's more.
