I (think I) solved the problem by inserting Unicode direction-switching markers at the appropriate points :

\font \hebrewfont = "David"




As these are difficult to insert by hand, I inserted them as "[" and "]" and then used regular-expression search-and-replace to perform the necessary substitutions :

\[ -> \x200E
\] -> \x200F
