It's certainly possible that there is a bug in XeTeX or ICU that is  
causing this (it wouldn't be the first such instance!).  
Alternatively, it could be an error in the font, but one that  
different layout engines handle in different ways.

Could you provide a minimal text file that shows the problem, along  
with both incorrect and correct renderings using SBL Hebrew, so I can  
compare the results?
