OK I have added desired/forbidden characters for heb and yid
I assume that apart from the 3 unique characters that you listed (for each) the list of nikuds should be the same?

I'm not sure. I don't speak (or write) Yiddish.

So, the 3 Punctuation marks I mentioned are used for Yiddish too.

05BE ‫־‬ HEBREW PUNCTUATION MAQAF
05F3 ‫׳‬ HEBREW PUNCTUATION GERESH
05F4 ‫״‬ HEBREW PUNCTUATION GERSHAYIM

I'm still not sure about the nikud for Yiddish.

It seems that it does not use all the Hebrew nikud signs.

Actually, it seems that there are quite a lot of Hebrew words in Yiddish.
