You would probably have to talk to one travel agent, or another, and get a price. I saw tickets for about $365 without looking too hard. Is it cheapest? I don't know.

You can try a boat, they used to have pretty cheap tickets on ships between Greece and Israel a decade or two ago, but I'm afraid its not as popular as it used to be, so you might not find any.

Sea and air are your only options, unfortunately.

Aegean Airlines currently has direct, return flights on these specific dates for €241.87 (including taxes and luggage). Olympic Air on the contrary is more expensive and flies through Athens. I believe the Aegean price is difficult to beat.

As overland travel, either by hitchhiking or by public transport (bus+train), is not really an option at the moment, flying will probably be the cheapest option.

On kayak, I have seen direct one-way flights from Tel-Aviv to Tessaloniki for 576 NIS (~120 EUR).

Going by ferry (if you find one) will hardly be cheaper. In 2011, there used to be a ferry service between Israel and Cyprus. The posted price is 250 EUR, one-way. From Cyprus, it is possible to take a ferry to the Greek mainland.
