# Maintain right to left Hebrew in English table

Put simply, the Hebrew word comes out correctly in the first instance but backwards in the second. How can I maintain right to left orientation of the text?

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{cjhebrew}
\begin{document}

\begin{cjhebrew}
b*:re’+siyt
\end{cjhebrew}

\begin{tabular}{ll}
English L to R text & \begin{cjhebrew}b*:re’+siyt\end{cjhebrew} \\
\end{tabular}

\end{document}

From the manual, it looks like you should use \cjRL for inline Hebrew:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{cjhebrew}
\begin{document}

\begin{cjhebrew}
b*:re’+siyt
\end{cjhebrew}

\begin{tabular}{ll}
English L to R text & \cjRL{b*:re’+siyt} \\
\end{tabular}

\end{document}
