I apologize, this is for the Yehudit font. I'll leave it in case others might find it helpful though...

As Helen notes, if you need to just cite biblical forms, you can turn on the Unicode export option in the Greek & Hebrew preferences, and just paste from the BHS-W4 text into Mellel.
I'm a Bib. Heb. student, and am trying to write a paper that includes a lot of Hebrew. Would someone please help me figure out how to insert a qamets or shwa into a final kaph, "embedded" like you would a dagesh? I use Mellel and Unicode fonts, e.g. Lucida Grande.
Lucida Grande's Hebrew vowels and pointing do not render well in OS X. I recommend the free SBL Hebrew Unicode font, which Mellel has very good contextual suport for, and renders these vowels very nicely. These are the OS X Hebrew-QWERTY layout key combinations, regardless of position relative to the consonant:
Qamets = shift-a
Shewa = option-zero
and as a bonus,
Dagesh = option-period
Note that Mellel properly renders the dagesh and qamets on the final kaph as in Num 6.25.
