Even though the info within the article (link below) has to do with health certificate recquirements for "exporting" poultry to other states within the USA (instead of your country Israel) it does show you what is entailed within the very general description of "health" and I would believe similar to be of importance to getting such a certificate to your country (testing for pullorum, AI etc) ... please note that the testing must be done several days to sometimes a month before actual export takes place!

more info on international exports of (live) birds:

Here is the form/info your country recquires for the importation of turkeys (I imagine similar is recquired for poultry and silkies will be poultry and not "pet" birds in all likelihood:

...this means you need the breeder to have the testing done and cannot wait till you get into the USA to try and get the certificate IMHO.
Perhaps others here at BYC has further ideas and tips for you.
