DL 35k RT is what I did, not sure if its the cheapest, but availability is plentiful
If you think nobody cares about you... just forget to pay your credit card bill

Best way to book LH F TLV-FRA-JFK (first leg is J). Does making two separate itineraries make it cheaper (because the first leg is actually J anyway)?

this can go a few ways.. If you can find a cheap way to FRA (look for roundtrips (as its cheaper than one ways) & dont/or do take the return) then its possibly worth booking via AC for 62,500 + YQ.
If you cant find a cheap way to FRA then just book via LH directly & make sure your address the country says Israel & it should be 85,000 + yq
