as KOREN it's perpose is for use for TANACH in big letters say 16-18 Pt.
not so readable at small letters. but has a nice feel to it.

Have you tried to draw a modern sans-like typeface?

Eli,
"Netsach" is excellent. My wife thought the numerals were very good.

An interesting phenomena... I REALLY liked the title נצח
set in Bold (or was it Extra Bold) and I liked the Text
ששירת מטרות חינוכיות
which was set in Medium (or maybe Bold). I liked the Regular, but less.
In retrospect, I think that this is because as the type face is made heavier
so the details become less visible and the basic underlying shape becomes
more dominant.

A little critical point. I think the Zayin is not sufficiently distinguished from
the Vav. This is because the Vav is already rather ornate and so adding even more
to the Zayin is difficult.

Impressive. This has real charm, and a lovely rhythm. Congratulations!

The only character that I don't like is the shin, where the lower left space seems pinched. Also I wonder about some of the kerning, like on "chayav" and "l'kayem", where the final letter seems too far from the two yods.
