5 Great Sites with Quality Hebrew Fonts for Your Designs
Finding modern, high quality, Hebrew fonts for your designs can be a chore. Here are some of the web's best Hebrew font resources:
1. The Open Siddur Project
In their words, the Open Siddur Project is “an open-source, community contributed archive for those sharing prayers and crafting their own prayer books”. They contain an archive of free, open source fonts that anyone can download and use for both personal and commercial products.

In their words, FreeFonts contains “Free Hebrew fonts for free download for web design, printing and commercial use.” They have a nice array of a little over 50 classic, display and handwritten Hebrew fonts that are available to download for free.
AlefAlefAlef is a font foundry with beautiful, modern, professional fonts available for purchase. They also have a section on their site with some free fonts that you can download. Just make sure to read the license for each font because they vary in usage permissions. And while you’re there - be sure to feast your eyes on the adorable logo animation in their nav bar.
Another great Israeli font foundry, FontBit has great modern fonts available for purchase. Their site navigates based on categories instead of a general listing/directory, so be sure to look around to find the best fit for your project.
MyFonts has a large selection of Hebrew fonts available for purchase. But keep in mind that you will have to filter through a host of sub-par fonts in order to find some of the gold nuggets.
