Just notarized, but seems like rules have changed and no need for apostille anymore.
What means Notarized? You take a copy of your birth certificate to a Notary and puts a Notary stamp on it?

When sending in the application for entry permit, make sure that the file size of the PDF is less than 5 MB. Apparently that's an unpublished rule
You can't make this stuff up
they put it in every email I've gotten in the last two weeks for them,which is where all the rules are published

Officially need to stay. Threats of denying future entry to Israel if they don't comply, remains to be seen whether or not that's enforced
a couple months ago they wouldn't let my sister leave, physically stopped her from going to gate

'funny' DP - they responded (round 4) to my request by asking for my birth certificate to prove relationship to a first degree relative. which would be fine, but I'm going with my wife to visit her sister who is a citizen, which I made abundantly clear in the application.

Does an "עולה בכח" "Temporary Resident" A/1/א need a permit to get into Israel? Or can they fly like a citizen?

Looking for a flight from TLV for the summer, Alitalia has available, but am thinking that its risky to think they will actually be flying. Maybe should only stick to airlines flying now. Thoughts?

anything for more than two week from now is speculation.  If you have a view on Covid, plan accordingly.  Otherwise, go with bookings that allow free cancellations explicitly, like some point options.

Yes, its points through Delta, flying Alitalia, which I understood from DDMS chart that is fully refundable if booked in April.

Just thinking that if things would remain as is, and not fully open, they probably won't be flying.

Delta should allow you to rebook on something that is operating if the Alitalia gets cancelled yet Covid is tame enough to let you fly - though SkyMiles is definitely not my expertise so maybe someone with more experience with Delta in these matters can chime in.

if you are comfortable to make plans based on an assumption of what the travel situation will be like in the summer, in the context of Covid.  If you believe it is over in Israel and the USA, you might as well obtain outright the "cheapest" flight you can find.

ישראלים עם ילדים ללא אזרחות זועקים: "כופים עלינו לאזרח אותם כדי לבקר כמה ימים בארץ"

לאחר שגם בתקופת הקורונה ילדים אמריקנים להורים ישראלים יכלו להיכנס לארץ, הנחיה חדשה בשבועות האחרונים התנתה את הגעתם בדרכון ישראלי. ההורים זועמים: "הילדים שלי נולדו בארה"ב, אנחנו משלמים מיסים כאן. זו דרישה הזויה". רשות האוכלוסין: "ישראל היא מדינת חוק, זה שהם בוחרים לא לרשום את ילדיהם לא הופך זאת לנורמה"

איתמר אייכנר | פורסם 16:42

הנחיה חדשה של רשות האוכלוסין הובילה לכך שאלפי אזרחים ישראלים שמתגוררים בארצות הברית לא יכולים להיכנס לארץ עם ילדיהם, שלא מחזיקים בדרכון ישראלי.

לפי חוק האזרחות, אזרח ישראלי, שנולד לו ילד בחו"ל, מחויב להסדיר את מעמדו ולרשום אותו כאזרח בישראל. במשך שנים נהגו ישראלים להתחכם וניצלו את העובדה שנושאי דרכונים אמריקנים יכולים להיכנס לארץ ללא ויזה, כשמדי פעם היו נוזפים בהם בביקורת הגבולות ומזהירים אותם שהם צריכים להסדיר את המעמד.

 הנחיות הקונסוליה בניו יורק
בעקבות משבר הקורונה סגרה המדינה את השמיים לזרים, אך אפשרה בשנה האחרונה לילדים של ישראלים בעלי דרכונים אמריקנים, שלא הספיקו להסדיר את אזרחותם, להיכנס למדינה עם אישור עלייה מיוחד למטוס. כל מי שהגיע לארץ בשנה האחרונה קיבל התרעה שהוא חייב להסדיר את רישום ילדיו. לפני כמה שבועות, בעקבות הנחיה של רשות האוכלוסין, הודיעו הקונסוליות הישראליות בארה"ב כי "נכון להיום לא מתאפשרת עוד כניסת ילדים להורים ישראלים הזכאים לאזרחות ישראלית. אישור חריג יינתן רק במקרים מיוחדים, כמו למשל מוות של בן משפחה מקרבה ראשונה – מקרים אחרים לא יאושרו".

כעת מוצאים את עצמם אלפי ישראלים בארה"ב, שלהם ילדים שרשומים כאזרחים אמריקנים, בפני שוקת שבורה. מי שכן מחליט לרשום את ילדיו כישראלים מגלה שמדובר בתהליך ארוך ומסורבל מאוד, בייחוד בתקופה זו בשל מגבלות הקורונה. הרוב גם אינם רוצים לעשות זאת מסיבות שונות (הורים גרושים שבן הזוג האמריקני מתנגד לרישום, רתיעה מגיוס לצה"ל, ענייני מס ועוד).
