Any updates on this? Does Schwab still have no ATM or forex fees, and will they mail the debit car to my son in Israel? Any other new options that are now better in any way, or is Schwab the way to go?

I use my Schwab card to withdraw cash when traveling. Very happy. Schwab doesn't charge fees and ATM fees reimbursed.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Td Beyond checking, requires 2500 in account.
 Or CPC if you can get without the required minimum in the account. Otherwise shwab or capital one 360.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

What's the advantage of Capital One 360 over Schwab?

That I don't know. I've only used CPC and TD Bank.
 While I'm not sure how you get reimbursed from the atm fees that they claim you get refunded for.
  If it's like a credit card they can see how many Shekalim you took out from the atm, and with some brains you can figure the atm doesn't dispense coins so that's obviously the fee from the atm.
 Don't know what's the story with these banks now. But i remember when I learnt in Israel I was always banking(no pun intended)on seeing a statement credit at the end up the month for all my withdrawals. That never happened, as it's not like a cc where all the purchases show the exact amount and in the conversion how many shekal to the dollar. All I saw was a US amount withdrawn.

 I remember seeing someone on the forum who said he had saved up all his receipts and went into the bank and manually had all the purchases refunded, I didn't exactly write how much each ATM charged me, just had the receipts but that was pretty useless, wasn't with my time.
 Just gave up on the few dollars I lost.

Yup. No reason not to. There's nothing in it for the referrer.
