Xmodmap configuration

While looking for something else, I stumbed upon the /etc/X11/Xmodmap
file. It seems to define certain keystrokes and their functions:
! keycode 22 = BackSpace
! keycode 107 = Delete

I'd like to define certain non-English keyboard shortcuts to translate
to their English equivelents, could I do that with this file? For
instance, I'd like CTRL-ה to be sent to the system as CTRL-V, as ה and
V share a key. What would be the proper syntax? I use the US English,
Dvorak English, and Hebrew keyboard layouts and I need the keyboard
shortcuts to be uniform across them (physical key mapping).

I'm currently running Fedora Core 6 on a Dell E1505 laptop. Thanks in advance.
