  • If the PDF uses Unicode for the Hebrew text then it should render fine. Standard fonts on Windows include the Hebrew glyphs.

    I just confirmed that a couple of PDFs with Hebrew text rendered fine in the PDF viewer sample 

    If you have PDFs that don't render then they may not be using Unicode. Do they work in the Reader app? I suspect those PDFs will work only on a Hebrew language system.
