Hopefully most folks already know, USPS & Israel Post have issued stamps for Hanukkah 2018. The Artwork is similar, the borders & text differ.
Supposedly USPS has ordered a batch from Israel, and will have them for sale here. However, its been a few weeks since they said that. ( Maybe busy with election mail ... ) Here's a broadcast I received:

Good Morning Lefty,
I am happy to advise we will be selling the Israel Hanukkah issue stamps and offering the Israel FDOI cancellation. We are currently working thru the specifics with pricing & format. I will be sending a notification out as soon as I have the approved specifics.
I know that we will have a joint issue FDOI cachet for purchase, I am unsure of any other products to be offered at this point.
I will let you know more when I know more.
Thanks for all you do!

Hi Lefty,
Going to the TSDA stamp show in Houston today. What are you looking for? I can ask around to see if anyone's gotten their hands on any stamps, FDCs, etc...

According to my information, the USPS is only selling the Israeli Hanukkah stamps in full sheets for $35. This is a very slight markup over the face value of the stamps. Item number is 801217. There are eBay sellers offering single stamps for around $6-$8.

Well, thanks for the USPS# ( 801217 )
Not seen on USPS.COM, I guess just (800)STAMP24.
One of my contacts said there would be a FDoI from Israel also available through USPS.COM Oh well.
