It's a OOo issue. Not long ago, the Hebrew translation was
half-German. I'd recommend sticking with the English interface (great
way to improve our English) or to use Koffice. In fact, I'm so happy
with Koffice (fast startup, no lag) that it's all I use now. Unless
you need some real advanced features, then Koffice should be enough.
Note that some .doc files display better in OOo than in Koffice,
