Ben Gurion is one the international airports of Israel.

Security measures are reasonably intense, so make sure you don't look like you're doing weird things. Fortunately hitchhiking is very common in Israel, so you don't have to worry too much.

The airport is close to Tel Aviv and very close to the highway between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.

Hitchhiking out

There is only one entrance/exit from Highway 1 and the security checkpoint doesn't seem a good place to hitchhike. Better stick to the terminals. Try at the taxi/pick up/drop off road in front of terminal, on level G as well as level 3. Make sure you have a sign (probably better in the Latin script) with your destination. It took guaka 4 minutes to find a ride with some Americans from Boston.

Route 40, to Jerusalem. Modi'in

From terminal 1 you can easily walk to Route 40 and on to El Al junction. Just make sure to walk to the trempiyada on road 40 south, that can take you to Jerusalem.
