Will I have problems getting into Indonesia with a US passport that marks my birthplace as Jerusalem? Thanks
Not really. A US passport is good enough. An Israeli passport is also ok you just require a visa.

When I was there last (few years ago) the only way was to bring it (or order) from Singapore.

There's a service that will deliver it from SIN?

There are many options from NYC. To list a few: CX, CZ and SQ.
There's Chabad there: https://www.chabadbali.org/ (For security purposes; you may have to submit Photo ID etc. showing that you're jewish, before they disclose the location).

Anyone know if this is still active?

Also anyone have recommendations of Komodo Island vs Gilli Island?

I think both are places that have their own experience, neither is better than the other.
if you want a unique experience then Komodo Island is the right choice, if you prefer to enjoy the beauty of the sea, especially underwater beauty then Gili Island is a more appropriate choice.
but this does not mean that Komodo Island does not have tropical natural beauty, in my opinion both are very beautiful and very very romantic places and most importantly both have local residents who are very hospitable to all tourists who visit no matter where the tourists come from.  ;D

Thank you!
I've settled on Komodo, can't give up seeing the Komodo Dragons

Anybody have a good reliable driver? I'll be there in August.
Also, I'm staying for a week near Ubud and thinking of the W Seminyak for my second week? Is Seminyak too touristy for a honeymoon?

What do you need drivers for?

Seminyak is a very beachy/hip vibe but it's nice. Chabad is in Seminyak

Grab is very easy and very cheap.
For longer drives (from Ubud to Seminyak) I used this and was very happy - https://www.balihonestdriver.com/
