Type pairing for a clean serif, Lyon Text

Hey all, I'm currently revamping the typography for a text-heavy site. It's currently using Freight Sans and Freight Text, which are nice fonts but Text has some readability issues and Sans' style isn't exactly what I'm looking for—it's a bit too 'whimsical':

I'm looking to replace it with Lyon Text, which is a very clean and readable serif:

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.

Hi Everyone, I've been trying to match my logo with a font for a while now, figured I'd ask here for suggestions seeing as there are so many pro's. I have a simple blackletter ambigram logo, picture a Lucida Blackletter connected to itself flipped, kinda like this: eǝ, to make the initials es with a cursive s. My problem is pairing this symbol with a good font for my name and other info on my business card and potentially my resume. Until now I've been using Helvetica 67 condensed medium, which is just to bland for me to keep using. Can anyone give me some pointers or suggestions on pairing fonts with blackletters?
