David is a Hebrew typeface based on the groundbreaking designs of type designer Ismar David. It is a popular typeface for body text and small titles or headlines, with an expressive but legible style. It is suitable for most kinds of office documents.

Ismar David designed David Hebrew as a metal typeface in 1954, and it was published by both Intertype and the D. Stempel type foundry. He took elements of the oldest Hebrew letter forms and distilled them down to their essentials, creating a new typeface that he hoped would bring the Hebrew alphabet into the modern era. David has open, readable forms in two weights, regular and bold. It has no italic style.
