Bitstream Vera Sans Mono has no Hebrew characters. I tried your file 
with a different monospace font (FreeMono), and it displayed the 
characters with misplaced vowels -- In order to get this to work right, 
you need a monospace font that supports vowels correctly, and I can't 
think of one off the top of my head. Also, you may have to force the 
Hebrew to use right-to-left directionality. Otherwise, the ending } is 

Hope this helps,
