When working bilingual, (e.g English-Hebrew) and writing in Hebrew, the apostrophe (Unicode #0027) is entered using the English font rather than the Hebrew one.
Please demonstrate the use case, in which the wrong language is being selected for the apostrophe.
It would be a good idea to create a short sample document and add it as an attachment, with exact instructions how to reproduce the problem.

Wrong vs right apostrophe
Added an attachment with wrong vs. right Hebrew apostrophe. Issue is easily reproducible: just write an apostrophe while in Hebrew mode. The apostrophe will be entered using the English font rather than the Hebrew one.
In fact, I haven't found a trivial way to enter a Hebrew (e.g. David font) apostrophe, other than pasting it from another application.
Could you please try to reproduce it with the latest version of LibreOffice
from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/ ?
I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to
'UNCONFIRMED' if the bug is still present in the latest version.
Issue reproduces on 6.0.7. Is build 6.1.3 an early adopters build? If so, I prefer not to install it, unless you can tell me the fix was committed to this build. In this case I'll be happy to validate.
When opening Avi's example, both the "Wrong" and "Right" apostrophes appear exactly the same to me. Also, changing the LTR font to Liberation Sans with a larger size does not affect either of them.
So, resolving as WORKSFORME for now. Avi, if you can provide verifiable reproduction instructions, or at least screenshots with a clear difference, please reopen.

Attaching a screenshot of both apostrophes. The wrong one (=wrong font, not David) is from regular typing in LibreOffice, the right one was pasted for another place.

Are you sure you've disabled AutoCorrect, and specifically, the replacement of simple quotes with smart quotes?
