I don't have the complete solution as I don't have Hebrew setup and really
don't have too much time to tinker with these rather intricate packages.
However, the fact that it happens after itemize and enumerate is
significant.  There is a switch \if at rl defined in rlbabel.def that allows
control according to whether you're in right-left mode or not.  It doesn't
get toggled very much at all, but when it does, the hebtech.cls also
switches off the headers - why exactly I don't know.  The use, e.g., of
latin numerals causes such a switch although it should apparently only be
local to the number that is being printed.  Evidently, something leaks out.
What you can do about it I do not know.  I've glanced through the Hewbrew
section of babel.dvi but didn't find any clues.  Maybe you could look
through it more carefully and find some suggestion there - or try contacting
the authors.  Sorry.

Cheers,  Phil
