El Al operates a daily service to EWR, LY017/018 operated by a 744, though, equipment may vary.
El Al does NOT fly ANY 763, only 762.
The service via STN which you are talking about, ContinentalEWR, was flight #015/016, the flight was operated by a mixed use of 747 & 757, 2 weekly flights, The service was ceased 2 years ago.
BTW, El Al also flew TLV-LHR-EWR.
Anyway, those services were in order to let LY pax the possible of a stop at London before or after their trip to the US or to Israel, on the same basic the airline flew last summer TLV-FCO-JFK, so the pax have a chance of visiting both Rome & Israel.
