    That'll work as well, RA. No worries, Hebrew is a tough language to those of us who have learned it even!

    If you're buying the beers, I suspect that our Jewish friends don't particularly care how you say it!

    ;)

    Happy New Year!

    If you're a man of few words, "Shalom" will do. It means peace. It you're raising your glass in a toast, then "L'Chayim" is the word you want.
    It means "to life", or as we say in the USA, "cheers".

    Quoting my wife:

    S Novym Godom!

    In Russian you dont say "happy new Year", just "New Year". Its a sign of respect to say it that way

    I usually just use a warm and friendly "Dude." Works for all occasions!
