Thanks, you are right, of course.

What I did was create a font metric for a Hebrew font (MS Tahoma), and then
add it to the userconfig.xml of fop. Afterwards I added the options:

--stringparam body.font.family tahoma

to the xsltproc command line, and that made it able to display the Hebrew 
characters. However, they are reversed. (Hebrew is written from right to left 
and they are left to right). I assume it is a FOP problem as there isn't yet 
support for RTL in FOP.
