Need creative help to book one-way fare....TLV-EWR/IAD

I already have a one-way fare booked on UA to Israel for 75k pp in Biz but am struggling to find a solution for a specific return flight.
My criteria are very rigid with the exception of the dates of travel.
Return Flight:
TLV-IAD or TLV-EWR non-stop only.
Departure Flight Time Window: 10:00pm-2:00am
2 People
Business Class
Date options: 10/21, 10/22, 10/23

When I looked to buy 2 one-way tickets, the cost was $7k+ total. (When I looked at the roundtrip price, it also was $7k+ ironically).
My preference would be to use my points or trade on CC but I honestly don't know what I need to make this happen.
(ie...Is there some sort of upgrade pass that I could trade for that is applicable for these flights)?

In short, I don't want to burn the cash and would appreciate your input.

Thanks in advance for your time.


P.S. The reason that I am being totally inflexible is that I have extenuating health issues and the only way that I could even do this trip is if I was on any of these particular flights.
Breaking the trip into separate parts isn't an option. This would be the longest trip that I have ever taken and riskiest. It is our 25th anniversary and I would like to find a way if possible to make this happen.
