I'm subscribed to get individual posts and I get the same question marks.
Very frustrating indeed.

Your problem may well not be with fonts at all, but because you are
subscribed to the digest for this list. I would expect that the digest is
compiled in ISO-8859-1 encoding which does not support Hebrew, and so you
get the question marks. If so, this is a bug in the list software. I would
suggest that you change your subscription to individual posts. 
These should then arrive UTF-8 encoded, an encoding which supports Hebrew,
as specified by the author (at least in this case), and you should be able
to read them.
