Is there any way to have Hebrew and English in the same document in Google Docs?

So far, everything I have found about multiple languages seems to assume that you want the user interface (menus, etc) and document text in the same language, and that you only want that one language. I would like the interface to stay in English but let me type Hebrew and English into the document text.

In short, yes!

Assuming you have a second language installed on your machine, you should simply be able to toggle to it normally. According to my experience Google Docs will automatically support it if your OS does. You can toggle back and forth at will (usually Cmd+Space on Mac, Alt+Shift on Windows, and user-defined on Linux) as you would in any other document.
