I do not know Hebrew, very sorry to say because I recently completed a serial with Jewish characters (human characters) and had to study Jewish expressions transcribed into Roman lettering. But have you tried changing the line spacing a bit? The setting is in Format > Paragraph.

At this point, TextMaker cannot display these Hebrew combinations better. There are plans to use a rendering engine (Harfbuzz) in a future release thast will solve this problem.
