Attempting to combine Hebrew and English text in the same sentence, as it
were to say 'shalom' in flight, assembles the language blocks the wrong way round. 

Use language specific character styles, and language specific paragraph
styles. Hebrew only, English only. You can't mix English and Hebrew in
the same style. Things will get messed up.

I usually use a different colour, for each paragraph style, and each
character style,. Then, when the document is completed, proof-read,
copy-edited, grammar checked, etc., change the style colours to black.

To avoid the misplaced punctuation issue, don't use the non-dominant
language at either the beginning, or end of the sentence. Ideally, it
won't be the first, or last word, in the correctly punctuated phrase.
