Hi Ori,
Happy I am not alone on this.
I get the feeling this has something to do with styles. when I try
changing the justification it kills the style.

Try this create the text in the story editor and then go to edit->
styles and create a style with a good font, one of the culmus fonts and
specify the justification there. Save it and then apply that style to
your text.

I added extra verses to my songs and the justification worked fine for

That said there are still lots of rough edges when it comes to hebrew,
so the more hebrew users using scribus the better.

Also make sure you are using the latest cvs from the scribus sources not
from debian.
