And what would the fee be on a paid ticket?
Depends which fare class, usually $150 (plus fare difference).

Where do I add TSA PreCheck to my reservation, flying from JFK, only by the check in counter?

Ask the question when ELAL is added to the list: https://www.tsa.gov/precheck/participating-airlines
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

does that mean I can't go on the pre-check line at Terminal 4?

Only if you have a boarding pass from a participating airline, and you gave that airline your KTN prior to your boarding pass being printed.

My parents are in need of a refundable fare from nyc to Israel. I looked at the basic economy fare (O) rules and it appears that El Al allows a refund before the first segment for a $250 cancellation fee. Can someone confirm that this is accurate? Is it an easy process to obtain  the refund?

Most likely, the fare is not refundable, but rather if you cancel before the deadline, you would receive credit towards a future flight (usually to be used within 1 year), less the fee. The only true refundable fares are the full Y class (maybe a couple more), that typically cost as much as (or more) than a business class flight.

It is refundable but elal will most likely add a $50 handling fee bringing your total to $300

Per reservation, per person, or per segment?
