Description: Kamatz or qamatz,Modern Hebrew: קָמַץ‎, Pataḥ,Hebrew: פַּתַח‎ pataḥ. is a Hebrew niqqud (vowel).a pataḥ makes the same sound as a qamatz, A bit of background: In Hebrew there are 10 vowels that come in 5 pairs. Modern Hebrew does not differentiate between the 2 vowels in each pair so that simplifies things. So, for example, the regular kamatz and the patach are both pronounced “ah”.
