It's at a record low now.
Check the 52 week range.  When you're looking at USD/RUB you see that the dollar went down 14% today against the Ruble.  That means the Ruble strengthened, not weakened.

...or just the dollar weakened. Or a combination of the dollar weakening and the ruble strengthening.

Tried this, the price for tickets from EWR-TLV isn't discounted. Oh well, thought I'd finally be able to visit Israel....

At Bloombergs.com it's showing that dollar is going up

You're misreading the chart.
http://www.bloomberg.com/quote/RUBUSD:CUR means the Ruble is getting stronger
http://www.bloomberg.com/quote/USDRUB:CUR means the Dollar is getting weaker

Whats a good deal? depends on the month/day, there are so many different options.

I would have loved to surprise a friend who is getting married there January 18 so around that date. A good deal is a safe airline (especially nonstop like this one would have been) for under $850.

When I had checked at about 11:40 it was at a record low. Now it's slowly creeping up.

So when the charges post, the savings aren't going to be so big.
