The official page for the Nehar Yarden (Jordan River) crossing, as the Israelis call it, says that your best option is taxi, and like any other Middle East border crossing, I'd expect a few to be hanging around.

I usually excuse myself before the call, letting them know that I'm going to be on a call (even if I'm not talking). ...
I know you asked for a taxi and I may have missed your reasoning behind it. have you considered the L? I've taken it several times and it goes to more places than you think. Pink line station at s Cicero.
