I'm looking for a (preferably free) hebrew font that the letter ח ("Chet"/"Ches") is shaped like the upper half of the letter "s" and is not a script font. The letter ל (lamed) should be shaped like a printed one, not have a loop on the bottom.

EDIT: The answer has been auto-selected by SU and is incorrect. Still looking...

There's a great list on this site (TrueType fonts), most of them are free.

Otherwise, you have this free project, but only for Linux distributions.

Still incorrect. can the second link be ported to windows? – Moshe Feb 19 '10 at 1:59
The fonts from Culmus are Postscript Type 1 fonts. MS Windows (from Win2000 onwards) supports Type 1 fonts, so you should be able to install the font files . You may need to convert from .pfa to .pfb first; use a font converter for this. should work, for example. – sleske Mar 8 '10 at 21:54

I'm no expert on the language, but oketz looks like it has a few that may suit your needs, all freely available.

I use this for my work with researching in other languages with hebrew content: - it is also free and has all characters that are needed.

Thanks, but I'm looking for a particular style of the font. I've seen that site before. – Moshe Feb 21 '10 at 4:05

Moshe - I'm not sure if the characters form the way you want to, but here is huge list of fonts that might help!
