No letter from school saying classes resumed.
We got the Ishur by sending in all necessary docs to the consulate.
The approval was dated Sunday. We received it Monday (The approval came from israel, while NY consulate isnít open on Sunday), for Tuesday flight.
My wife and I are both US citizens.

Few weeks ago. Yes they kept asking for diff docs in diff formats. They closed Sunday. Iíve gotten response on a Friday, but not really helpful, as they are just forwarding all information to Jerusalem.

Then I think you'll have to get
 permission,  but it should be much easier.

Just heard first hand account from a family that own an apartment in Israel, and one parent is an Israeli citizen, that they were declined entry till they prove that they tested negative for Covid19, and tested positive for antibodies.
