Hebrew Pair for Poetica?

I'm looking for a Hebrew typeface to pair with Poetica. I know this may be hard since it's a chancery italic but I was hoping one of you guys may have an idea. Below is a sample for your reference.

Side discussion: Did anything ever happen with Eric Gill's Hebrew typeface? Has it been digitized? I read on a blog it has been but was unable to find a version of it.

Sadly Gill's Hebrew has indeed been digitized...

Traditionally Hebrew does not use this kind of decorative approach.

Have a look at http://www.typophile.com/node/35367 if you must!
Also at David, http://typophile.com/node/90718 especially the inclined forms.

To compound your problems, Hebrew does not naturally incline to the right.
Modern Hebrew fonts that do incline to the right are offering almost a strong
maybe aggressive 'in your face' kind of emphasis quite unlike traditional italian italics.

(Stay away from Gill. He did not understand Hebrew.)
