The two of you are talking about two different things. Aryeh isn't 
saying that there is no hyphen in Hebrew, he's saying that hyphenation 
isn't used to split long words between lines.

That said, I don't agree with Aryeh either: in newspaper articles with 
narrow justified columns hyphenation seems to be quite common. In 
printed books it's much rarer, but it is used now and then.
