As there are no patterns available (which I don't find so very 
surprising, as I believe hyphenation is rarely used in Hebrew 
typography), I suggest using \uselanguage {nohyph} instead. (Or is it 
nohyphen? I forget...)

(If you really want to permit hyphenation "everywhere" within your 
Hebrew text, you could create some trivial patterns to do this:


and then adjust \lefthyphenmin and \righthyphenmin according to the 
minimum-length fragments you'd like to enforce.)
