The Jewish high holiday is upon us, and I would like to wish my Jewish friends happy Rosh Hashanah.

Thanks Al.

Are you a New Yorker originally? 'cause that's a very new york pronunciation Smile

Canonically, its closer to Rosh HaShonah.

I was born and raised in the Philadelphia area, and I got the spelling form a google search.

Heh. Well its transliteration of Hebrew so really any of may spellings are perfectly legit.

Was just curious though because the "hahSHAnah" pronunciation is very NYC Smile Its how I heard it growing up but, having read the Hebrew, "SHO" really is more correct vowelization.

Ofcourse all vowels in Hebrew are a bit of a guess anyway, as the actual Torah is vowel-less. (And space-less. Its not really a book. Its more of a stream of consenants that's used as a memory-aid for what is fudamementally an oral tradition.)

Maybe it's a Sephardic/Ashkenazi thing.
