I can give you a little update about Israel.

The collection at Beit Hatfuszot (the Diaspora Museum) is not open to
the public and I think it isn't even catalogued. What a shame.

There are two public libraries that do give genealogical help twice a week:

The first is the National Library in Jerusalem which has also includes
the Jacobi collection of manuscripts. Their collection is situated
next to the room where the help session are held.

The second one is just beginning and getting organized at Beit Ariela,
the main branch of the Tel-Aviv public library system.

But before mailing books, I suggest contacting the librarian in charge
to make sure they don't have the books already.
