I went to a synagogue the other day and after presenting the chief rabbi with an apple he exclaimed 'TODAH!'. Anyone know what this means?

Hi and welcome to Mi Yodeya. Questions about the Hebrew language (except in contexts like prayer, torah text, etc) are off-topic here, but see Josh's answer for some helpful information. You may be interested in our other questions about hebrew. I hope you enjoy the site. – Monica Cellio Jan 17 '14 at 14:04

It means thank you. Here is a transliterated hebrew dictionary of sorts, such that you can write a word by typing English letters and get a translation. http://www.doitinhebrew.com/Translate/default.aspx?kb=IL+Hebrew+Phonetic#.UtkkCH-9KSM
