It is sometimes possible to recover the text.
Note that in case of Hebrew, I guess that the text will be in visual
Hebrew, so you'll probably need to apply visual->logical conversion.
In some cases the postscript->PDF conversion (mainly if you use older
versions of ghostscript) may have converted the text to graphics, and thus
made it unrecoverable.
Also note that if the postscript originated from hebrew latex with the
original LHE encoding, you'll get the hebrew there encoded as "7bit"
Hebrew (Hebrew in place of small-caps English letters)
I think that both acrobat reader and ghostview allow you to extract the
text. I don't remember exactly how.
