I see the same display after telling Emacs to decode the file as
UTF-8.  Also, the command 'file' agrees with me:

  document.txt: UTF-8 Unicode text, with CRLF line terminators

In any case, it should be clear that displaying Latin character for
what's supposed to be Hebrew text is not what you'd expect, right?

Please send me the file which, when visited in Emacs, shows the
display of the image you posted.  It cannot be the file you posted
originally, because that one is clearly in UTF-8.

Please re-verify that.  Maybe it's your mailer that did some recoding,
in which case please send the files as a compressed archive.
