Need a U.S. Passport Immediately?

You should make an appointment to be seen at a Regional Passport Agency only if:

The U.S. passport is needed in less than 2 weeks for international travel
The U.S. passport is needed within 4 weeks to obtain a foreign visa
Contact the National Passport Information Center to make an appointment or locate a Passport Agency.

go to :

http://travel.state.gov/passport/npic/npic_898.html

and make a appointment you will get it the same day or the next day , (depends when you are flying) .

Daughter going for seminary iy"H. Her passport expires in May, so she should get in but will need to renew before she comes back. Does it make sense now to book an appointment now at Israeli consulate in J-m?
How do I do that?
TIA

Appointment where?  Getting an appointment is not the issue, processing time is.

Any way of getting a new passport in a short time???
How short?

I took my kids for passports on 7/8 (yes, 2 weeks ago), I got an email today that I should receive them within a week. It really depends on the processing agency, I was told mine were sent to Philly.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Where did you take the kids on 7/8?  Had they given you an emergency appointment?

Toms River PO. I just went online and made an appointment the night before.

My son is scheduled to go to Yeshiva in Israel at end of August but his passport is expiring the first week of September.  Does anyone have advice how to renew his passport in the next few weeks?

Welcome to the club.   :-[
I have been trying to answer this.  I can tell you that I spoke to Chaim Vchesed in EY this morning.  Consensus is that ELAL will allow boarding even with passports with less than six months on them.  And the gov't does not care; its not their issue.  I also think the passport office is moving more quickly, but maybe not quickly enough.  If you apply now, you have to surrender the passport.  If you don't get the new one on time, you unquestionably won't fly.  For now, I am holding on to my daughter's passport, which expires in Nov.  You have a different coniseration--if the zman is delayed the passport may expire.  Then you are stuck.  Not sure why the State Dept can't extend all passports for six months.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19 and protect our workforce and customers, we significantly reduced passport operations in March 2020. We temporarily suspended expedited passport processing and restricted service to cases involving life-or-death emergencies. As global conditions evolve and U.S. states begin to reopen, we are resuming operations in phases. We ask for your patience as we safely work on your application.

Routine Service (If you live in California, Florida, Illinois, Minnesota, New York, or Texas):

                National Passport Processing Center
                Post Office Box 640155
                Irving, TX 75064-0155

Routine Service (If you live in any other state or Canada):

                National Passport Processing Center
                Post Office Box 90155
                Philadelphia, PA 19190-0155

As I posted upthread, my kids passports were processed in Philadelphia within 2 weeks of sending the application. If you live in any state that sends renewals to Philadelphia, you'll probably have it processed very quickly.

Should be, since kids passports are always processed as first time passports
