This is the third or fourth time I have heard of difficulties creating
lists on non-US Wikipedia's for registered national heritage. I feel quite
sure that this is probably due to some notability problem such as how to
prove the items on the list are indeed notable.

In my view, you can best get around this as a new WLM participant by
beginning with the low-hanging-fruit, which is the list of heritage sites
that already have articles on your Wikipedia, augmented of course by any
World Heritage Sites you may have in your area. Use their sources for
starters, just to get your list-making infrastructure up&running. Whatever
country you are from, making the lists is a long and difficult task, so the
easiest way to get others to help you is to start as early as possible
creating the first few lists and their associated templates.

You can even start out on the English Wikipedia. I feel quite confident
that the World Heritage will already be listed there, and creating your
first Table Header and Table Row templates will be easier using the English
examples for other countries (pick one with the closest fit), which you can
then translate (or ask some local template wizard to help out with this).

I just clicked on the Hebrew, and had some difficulty finding the edit
button, but I see that indeed the lists aren't there. I agree with Maarten,
you will need to conform as quickly as possible to the central
infrastructure, or your work won't make it into the database!

Good luck!
