Moshe Rynecki – Le Get

Berlin 1911: A final ruling on how to spell the name Jenni.

Rabbi David Zvi Hoffman reached a conclusion concerning the orthography of the name Jenni in Hebrew. He ascertained that it ought to be spelled as Zayin, Shin, Ayin, Nun, Nun, Yud. The predicament lied in representing the J (dΚ’) sound in Hebrew, referred to as Zayin Shevurahβ€”broken zayin, which falls between the Zayin and Shin sounds. Rabbi Hoffman ultimately determined that moving forward, both the Zayin and Shin letters should be employed to encompass the J sound.
