Default English document from Israel defaults to right-to-left format

In New York, using Office 2003, I receive Word documents from all over the
world, including those from Israel that seem to have default Hebrew settings
even when written in English. I keep resetting Language on Tools menu to
English (US), but it doesn't stay (slips back to Hebrew) and even when set to
English, there are right-to-left glitches. MS Help tells how to adjust to and
from right-to-left alignment and right-to-left typing when you have a Word
program that enables those things, but not when you receive a document
generated by such a program but don't have the settings yourself. The
problems are worst in footnotes and tracked comments; these insist on right
aligning and typing right to left (or switching direction mid-line) at
scattered points throughout the document. What to do???
