Samples of Hebrew Fonts

This page shows how some very common fonts will handle Hebrew text on your device using your browser using standard Unicode characters for the Hebrew. Some websites may have alternate means of displaying Hebrew. This site normally displays Hebrew using the Google font Noto Serif Hebrew to avoid any possible issues. I have not loaded that font on this page and will let it demonstrate what various standard fonts will look like in your browser, including the default font that your brower will use if the web page includes Hebrew unicode characters with no other information.

I have provided examples with consonants only (the way Hebrew is normally written in Israel for native speakers) and with nikkud (vowel points and other points to help with pronunciation, used by non-native speakers).

Consonants Only

Alef should be on the right alef

tav Tav should be on the left

If they are not, your browser may be rendering Hebrew in reverse.

I have designed each example below to lay out in a single line. If your screen is too narrow to see the whole line, you should be able to scroll right and left to see the rest.

Default: אבגדהוזחטיכךלמםנןסעפףצץקרשת
Times: אבגדהוזחטיכךלמםנןסעפףצץקרשת
Arial: אבגדהוזחטיכךלמםנןסעפףצץקרשת
Courier: אבגדהוזחטיכךלמםנןסעפףצץקרשת
Cursive: אבגדהוזחטיכךלמםנןסעפףצץקרשת

With Nikkud

In examples with nikkud, marks should appear more or less where they appear in red in the image below. If they do not, your browser may not handle nikkud correctly.
