BTW we've had very positive feedback on the DejaVu Hebrew glyphs so far.
So maybe Ubuntu is doing something that breaks them. Or maybe you're
just not used to them (seems that the first reaction to a font style you
never encountered is always negative¹). Anyway if you have specific
complaints about DejaVu Hebrew don't hesitate to report them on , or #dejavu.

There is still room to get fixes in before next release. Especially is
the bug report is detailed². 

¹ cf the numerous "Arial is abismal, no way people will accept it
instead of Helvetica" rants when Arial was first introduced in Windows

² Unless your problem is just the font is different from Arial – DejaVu
never pretended to be an Arial clone, and it's not there to replicate
