You don't need Arial Unicode MS for non-accented Hebrew, and it is a 
horrible font in many other ways. Pointed but non-accented Hebrew is 
legibly displayed with any of the Microsoft core fonts e.g. Arial 
(regular version), Times New Roman, in the versions distributed with 
Windows XP. Tahoma supports polytonic (classical) Greek as well as 
Hebrew. For fully legible fully pointed Hebrew you should download SBL 
Hebrew or Ezra SIL.

But the real requirement is for language settings to support Hebrew.
