Here is how I setup my computer to be able to write in Hebrew:

1. System>Preferences>Keyboard
2. Select the Layouts tab
3. Click on Add
4. In the Layout select Israel. Leave Variant as Default. Click Add
5. Click on Layout Options. In the layout switching section select which
key combination will switch between the keyboard layouts.
6. Optional. You may want to add the Keyboard Indicator widget to the
panel so you can see (and change) which keyboard layout is now active.

Thats it.
