I have a Romanian passport which I have settled status with. I live in the UK, married to a British citizen. my Romanian passport is about to expire and I wasn’t able to renew it due to COVID. I also have a valid Israeli passport. I would like to travel to Israel for a couple of months to visit my family. In case I don’t manage to renew the Romanian passport while I’m in Israel, can I enter the UK with my Israeli passport and continue to stay in the UK indefinitely?

You would need to enter the U.K. on the Eea national passport you was given settled status with.

You can be refused entry without valid visa for this passport.
