Ubuntu has full support for RTL languages like Hebrew. If you installed Ubuntu and chose a Hebrew keyboard layout then you can switch from English to Hebrew and back using the Alt+Shift keys.

If you can't, make sure you have Hebrew keyboard layout by opening Keyboard Layout and adding the RTL language:
