First, find a font that gives you legible Hebrew characters.  (You
didn't say what system are you one; the way of doing this depends on
the OS.)  Let's say that font's name is "CoolFont".

Then put this in your ~/.emacs:

  (set-fontset-font t 'hebrew "CoolFont")

This causes Emacs to use the specified font for Hebrew.

If you find a font that is good for both English and Hebrew, then
setting the 'font' attribute of the 'default' face will cause Emacs to
use that font as the default font.
