I try to compile a simple test code with Hebrew one TexStudio:


% Add texlive-lang-other library to compile LaTex with Hebrew
שלום \L{World}!

But I get the following error message:

line 2: Font LHE/cmr/m/n/10=jerus10 at 10.0pt not loadable: Metric (TFM) file not found. \select@language{hebrew}
: No hyphenation patterns were preloaded for(babel) the language `Hebrew' into the format.

I would strongly suggest using XeTeX. See this post for an example. If you intend to write anything more than trivial however, LyX would make it much easier for you, as there are lots of directionality quirks LyX takes care of automatically.
