You should not be getting parentheses inside character classes.
Ignoring Hebrew letters as a distraction, the rule is
$ALetter × $ALetter
and $ALetter has the value
This is a regular expression; it is not defined by a single character
class (or Unicode set).
At each point for which no break decision has been made, there shall
be no break if a string immediately before and a string immediately
after match that pattern.
