Thread Name: Lyr Req: Hineh Ma Tov (phonetic)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Hineh Ma Tov
For those who haven't heard the Hebrew, I should probably do a more phonetic rendition:

Hee-nay mah tove oo-mah nah-eem
Sheh-vet ah-cheem gahm yah-chahd

"Tove" rhymes with "stove". The "ch" is pronounced as in the Scots "loch" or German "buch". And since I don't have the original Hebrew in front of me, I may be mistaken about "na-im"--it might really be "na-yim".
