I thought that if you could do it in InDesign, maybe you could do it in MS Publisher. I found out you can.
In Publisher, draw a Text Box [Edit: , insert a Table, etc.,] and before you type a Hebrew consonant in it, click Home > Font > Diacritic Color, and select a color.

Next, change the system language to HE, choose a font, and type a consonant and diacritic. Your Font Color on the Toolbar will color the consonant, and Diacritic Color will color the diacritic.

If you want the next consonant to not have a colored diacritic, go back into Home > Font > Diacritic Color and uncheck Diacritic Color. You can keep typing until you want to change the color of another diacritic.

So, you have to choose diacritic color before you type a consonant, turn it off if you don't want it.
Here is your example Elijah:
If you copy a word with colored diacritics into MS Word, the diacritic color disappears
Thanks for this question Elijah, and your input bk. It helped me track down where the feature was in Publisher.
