To get the right to left language options you'll need to install the MENA (Middle East/North Africa) version of ID.

Should be available from the CC app.

Thank Peter, as Adbe suggested  I switched temporarly my account adobe to hebrew languages and then I've installed my ID againg and I was sercheing for MENA font in the Adobe font, but MENA doesn't exist, there is only Myriad , Adobe and Noto as hebrew language.

Unfortunally doesn't still work, this set up didn' t fix any thing, the direction of the hebrew texts are still wrong way. 

There is any body can help me? Thanks
