what do you mean by "download"? For which use, which device/software type/format?

It's perhaps worth mentioning that three of the five maps available via the layer switcher (the "stack of books" icon) at the right-hand side of the OpenStreetMap.org website already display names in both Hebrew and English (to me in England).

If you download the Isreal and Palestine data file from Geofabrik, you can then parse that whatever way you want. The name tag will have the local name (so it'll be Hebrew/Arabic(?)). If you need "English" names, you can just extract the name:en tag.

What type of "download" do you want? An image? Tiles? Shapefile? Garmin?
