Aharoni is among a number of Hebrew fonts, including: David, Frank Ruehl, Gisha, Levenim, Miriam, Narkisim and Rod. As with all Hebrew fonts, Aharoni requires right-to-left functionality, supported by both your computer's system and the actual application that you will use Aharoni with.

Check to see that your PC has one of the following operating systems, which all supply Aharoni: Windows 2000,Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, Windows XP and Windows 7. If you have one of these operating systems, you can use the font by simply opening any program that supports it.

Download the font from a third-party website, like, although be prepared to pay around £39 (as of 2010) to do so. Keep in mind the system requirements for Mac (MacOS X 10.3 and above) operating systems. Also keep in mind that the font is only supported by certain Mac programs: Adobe InDesign CS2 ME+, Adobe Photoshop CS2 ME+, Adobe Illustrator CS2 ME+, Adobe Flash CS5 ME, Mellel 2+ and Nisus Writer.

Buy a Hebrew keyboard or purchase Hebrew stickers for your keyboard. Navigate to the "Start" menu and select the "Control Panel," "Date, Time, Language Options" and click the "Languages" tab. Check the "Install files for complex script and right-to-left languages (including Thai)" box. Click "OK" after the warning message displays, then click "Apply." Reboot your computer.

Navigate to the language settings ("Date, Time, Language Options"), select the "Languages" tab and click "Details." Click "Add" and select "Hebrew" from the drop-down list and click "OK." Click your way out of the dialogue box, remembering to "Apply" your changes on the way out. To toggle between Hebrew and English, hold "Alt" and "Shift" down together, and watch the blue icon on the bottom-right of your screen change from "EN" (English) to "HEB" (Hebrew).
