How to learn Hebrew in the Boston area?

My daughter, a first-year college student, wants to learn Hebrew, but doesn't want to take it at college. Any thoughts on whether it's better to take an on-line course or to take an instructor-led course? And are there any good resources, preferably in the northwest area of Boston? She speaks French pretty well, so she's had some experience in learning languages. We'd appreciate any advice.

Middle East in Hebrew?

Where can I find good online maps of the Middle East with the country and place names in Hebrew? Something like this one here. I can't read or write Hebrew, so I'm (apparently) hampered in tracking something down. Making an English language search and then trawling through 20 pages of google images at google.co.il turned up nothing. Alternatively, where can I buy such a map in London?

Hebrew input support in X

How do I add a foreign language (Hebrew) input to X, and how do I switch keyboard layouts? This was easy to set up in Gnome and KDE, but I've since left those for Fluxbox, which doesn't (seem to) have a proprietary configurator. I'm running Debian/Testing, xorg 6.8.2dfsg.

Hebrew fonts for Tiger?

I'm using Mac OS 10.4 (Tiger), and Microsoft Word 2004. Where the heck can I find some free Hebrew fonts that will show up in a freakin' Word doc?!? I've tried several Unicode fonts (SBL Hebrew and Cardo) - they show up in my Word font menu, but only with English characters! Can I still download either TrueType or PostScript fonts, or did those stop working on Macs during the days of New Coke and Reagonomics?

Do you know of software, sites, or books that can help in learning Hebrew?

I've just started studying Hebrew (the class has a focus on "Biblical Hebrew"), and I'm looking for some additional resources outside of class. Does anyone know of software, internet sites, or books that might be helpful in learning a language so different from English? So far the class hasn't been too bad, but I'd like to do additional learning at home.
