The issue was raised during the LibreOffice conference and I think this isn't a bug, as in formulas you can't change the order of variables. You're welcome to use quotation marks to include Hebrew strings (then they appear correctly).

[This is an automated message.]
This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:
