    I have searched the web a bit and found that:

    but due to lack of knowledge in CSS and WordPress, I am not sure how to implement the solution (or, preferably, have a new version of Startup Blog Pro with that being solved).

    Thanks for the link, that helps a lot.

    Do you have a child theme already? If so, you can add the following to the functions.php file:

    function my_load_hebrew_font() {
      wp_enqueue_style( 'my-google-fonts', '//');
    add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'my_load_hebrew_font' );

    If not, let me know and I can help you quickly add a child theme to your site.

    No, don’t have a child theme yet 🙂

    Okay no problem. You can dowload the child theme here:

    It implements the snippet I shared above based on the info in the stack exchange thread. You can upload the file via the Appearance menu and activate like a regular theme.
