I think it is specific to your Hebrew font.  Please tell me
which font is selected by typing C-u C-x = on some Hebrew

 Thanks for your reply.

Here is the output:

        character: ל (1500, #o2734, #x5dc)
preferred charset: iso-8859-8 (ISO/IEC 8859/8)
       code point: 0xEC
           syntax: w  which means: word
         category: .:Base
      buffer code: #xD7 #x9C
        file code: #xD7 #x9C (encoded by coding system utf-8-unix)
          display: composed to form "לֵ" (see below)

Composed with the following character(s) "ֵ" using this font:
  xft:-unknown-DejaVu Sans-normal-normal-normal-*-13-*-*-*-*-0-iso10646-1
by these glyphs:
  [0 1 1500 1328 8 1 7 11 0 nil]
  [0 1 1461 1299 0 3 6 -1 2 nil]

Character code properties: customize what to show
  general-category: Lo (Letter, Other)
I do not think I have any font-related customization in my .emacs (this is the default choice on my system).

Any tips on which fonts I should use (and how to set them up)?
