Design and Sefirah

The patach is displayed as a straight line (similar to a horizon­tal vav). The patach represents the Sefirah of Chochmah1—the flash of an idea or wisdom. It alludes to the horizontal line of thought, as explained in the letter hei.


The numerical value of the patach is six, corresponding to the gematria of the letter vav.
