I’m developing a reference web site, to help English speakers learn the Hebrew alphabet. I’ve used character escapes for all the Hebrew letters, but they render in the block sans-serif style.

I wish the Hebrew letters to render in block serif style, and am asking if there is a free font I can use to achieve this?

Here is Font Squrrel’s selection of (free) fonts supporting Hebrew. I am no expert on the distinction you want to achieve, but to me it looks like the serif fonts (Tinos and Cardo) fulfil your criteria. I haven’t looked at the sans-serif fonts.

  • Thanks. The distinction is the default font for ASP.NET MVC pages shows Hebrew as sans-serif, and as I am trying to learn Biblical Hebrew, without serifs on the screen, it is very hard to discern glyphs with serifs on another screen.

Google Fonts have some typefaces like the ones you require too.
