[espeak-ng:master] New Comment on Issue #825 Hebrew is not supported
By OrionRandD:

There is something wrong in espeak-ng, related to debian or the error is in the package itself. Because, espeak-ng --voices| less does not show any "he" - Hebrew - language It only shows "hr" for Croatian. But, if I use espeak-ng -vhr "any Hebrew word" this "hr", which is a Croatian voice, spells each Hebrew letter, but not the entire word as unit. Is the Croatian alphabet the same as the Hebrew alphabet? Something is wrong then: either in espeak-ng or in the "hr" language voice... Can you install debian in a VM - say Virtualbox and test it? Thx

mbrola-hb1 and mbrola-hb2 packages are data files for completely different MBROLA https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MBROLA sound synthesizer. eSpeak NG can be used as a "front end" for it to do text-to-phoneme translation for MBROLA. Though it doesn't have configuration files for Hebrew. See more at MBROLA Voices https://github.com/espeak-ng/espeak-ng/blob/master/docs/mbrola.md I can create initial settings for it, but to make it usable, improvements will be needed by native speaker.
