Public transportation in Israel is operated by a nationwide rechargeable travel card known as Rav-Kav.
Cards can be picked up in major train and bus stations. If you are arriving from the airport by train, and plan on using public transit later on, it is recommended that you collect a card (one per person) at the airport train station. Charging Rav-Kav can be done online with a credit card via the official mobile app (requires an NFC-capable device). See here for information on how to install and use the app.
Alternatively, you can use HopOn (Rav-Pass) or Moovit, which allow both charging Rav-Kav and paying for bus trips directly by scanning a QR code located in the bus. They can also be used for train trips, with a slightly different procedure: you need to enable location services on your device, which will allow the app to detect your station of origin, and a QR code will appear on your device's screen. The gateways at the train station are equipped with QR scanners to validate your entry.
For Taxis inside Israel, we recommend you to download the mobile apps GETT or YANGO.
