I jsut booted up Stellarium. Between Italiano and Latvieso, there are 2 
languages listed on my system that appear as boxes. I don't have hebew 
istalled, I am relatively certain. Hebrew, if supported by Stellarium, is 
likely one of these 2.

Go into stellarium setup and look on the first (left) setup tab and check 
under Program Language and set it there.

If you cannot determine it, becasue they are all boxes, then try the 

In your /home/.stellarium directory you should find a config.ini file. Open it 
in kwrite and scroll down to [localization]. Where is says app_locale =, you 
will put the abbreviation for hebrew (he, maybe?). save and restart
