Date format

I want to write a letter in Hebrew, and insert the date in Hebrew, but when I choose Insert > Date..., no matter what I try, I get the date entered in a US format. 

The problem is probably with how your System Preferences are set. This is what you need to do:

  1. Open your System Preferences. 
  2. Go to the Language & Region panel and click the Advanced... button. 
  3. Choose your preferred language from the Language format pop-up menu and OK.
