That solved the problem.
Is there a clear award chart when combining LY with AA domestic?

When you use Qantas Points to book a Classic Flight Reward seat on any Qantas or Jetstar flight, you'll be able to change the date or cancel your booking, free of charge until 31 October 2020

That sounds like only Qantas flights, maybe elal is different?

I had a qantas awards elal J class ticket for November.

I just got this from Elal directly:


"
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, your flight during the month of November, has been cancelled.
If you are interested in reviewing a possibility of an alternative flight, please contact us by mail creditrequest@elal.co.il..
If you are not interested in an alternative flight, at this stage your ticket will be kept for future use.
If your booking was made by a travel agent, we kindly ask that you contact the agency.
When EL Al returns to normal operation, we will offer you an alternative for your ticket or monetary refund, per your selection.
You can follow our flight schedule on our website: www.elal.com
We wish to apologize for the inconvenience.
EL AL"


Will ELAL let me rebook with them at a later day or I will have to go through Qantas?

Also anyone know the status of tourists being allowed into Israel and also when ELAL will resume flights.

Thank You!

I had a ticket booked on LY J via QA for November.  I called the other day to move it to a later date without any issues.  If you booked via Qantas, you likely need to call them to make any changes.

You called Qantas? Did there have to be the award space or you could choose any date elal had flights?

Thanks
