    Why doesn't Android support Hebrew characters?

    All Android phones have this problem, since fonts have to be stored in internal memory. Android phones currently can't display any RTL language (Arabic, Hebrew, Persian, Pashto, Urdu, Pashto, etc). There are a few other languages that can't be displayed either. A request for Arabic is at the top of the issues list- Issue 5597 - android - Arabic language support . - Project Hosting on Google Code

    It's really a shame, support for these languages are basically necessary for many government/private sector jobs

    If your phone is "routed" you can install Hebrew fonts easily, check it out at the end of my tutorial (see signature).

    בהצלחה

    Possibly because there are only about 15 million jewish people in the world. That is a small demographic.
