I hear TLV is looking to do on site testing with results in 15 minutes (unclear if it's for Covid or antibodies), this might be the deciding factor in opening up.

I was under the impression that they screen everyone on arrival but they still need to quarantine.

How about someone with an Israeli passport entering Israel now (for example on UA90) are they enforcing any quarantine requirements?
they have to fill out an online form to do at home quarantine and include an address and a phone number and they come check on you to make sure that you are in quarantine. They have already come past my house 4 times since last Thursday.

Quarantine is still in place. But if they can implement an accurate Covid19 screening process in TLV which will take only a few min. they will lift the restrictions on foreigners and the need for quarantine. I believe that by late June or July we will see this happen.

they worked so hard to keep it covid free, i cant believe they will just let people in even with the test,its not 100% accurate,and even if it is,you can still test negative and carry the virus....,all it takes it 1 person to bring it in and they are back to another outbreak

Israel is developing their own test. So if implemented I assume they trust its accuracy. OTOH it's not sustainable long term for Israel to be isolated.

If it's extremely urgent, maybe recommend shipping it

Did you find someone ?  You can always contact the embassy, they'll be able to help you.

The ban on non-Israelis entering the country in order to stop the spread of COVID-19 has been extended into mid-June.The Israel Airports Authority notified airlines on Wednesday that non-citizens would be barred until at least June 15, The order had been set to expire on May 30.In addition, Israelis returning from abroad will still be required to self-isolate for 14 days until that time.

I’m agree with that. However they’ve already started excepting Israeli’s back in already. So if that was the Absolute bottom line, they would keep  borders closed.

Israeli citizens were always allowed in. Nothing started.

Do they still need a letter from the yeshivah?
Is the Mir giving these out yet?

you do not get a letter.
the yeshiva needs to do it for you.

Very impractical quarantine requirements for this to actually work.
Not practical for the mir or brisk to have any bochurim with these conditions
