I'm looking to book in early January, it is coming up as 40,650 miles for NYC-TLV in business (for example, Jan 11). Flights are operated by Iberia. What am I doing wrong?

Is your Iberia acct. registered as U.S. or Spain?

it's not pricing out. Once you pick the flights you got a pop-up that you don't have enough miles. You can see in the grayed-out area the miles and taxes etcetera but it seems to be without the sale i.e.  JFK-LHR came out to 63,500 (don't remember exactly but somewhere around there) for j which doesn't seem to be the regular price or the discounted price

I was able to price them out from this link before transferring miles from Chase:

Their milage booking tool.

Decided against pulling the trigger since I wanted 4 seats in business TLV-MAD-TLV for March, and the only dates were on an A320 with Euro business.  It's a great deal, and I do tend to be a "gambling man" in these situations, but between the virus uncertainty and aircraft type uncertainty, I gave it a "soft" pass.  I was excited to take my entire family into bed class for only 40K Avios, but no sense in letting the flight product dictate the vacation destination if it can't be guaranteed.

They are changing out A330's for A320's on some flights as days go by, so there is an additional gamble that the lie flat seat you booked won't be there when you fly.

For example: Feb 23 MAD-TLV.
(NYC-MAD remained unchanged, for now...)

My thoughts: If TLV is open by then, demand should skyrocket and they will change back, and if not, than no one is flying regardless...
