    This may not apply to you, but generally, people who don't know how to say it also don't know what it really means, rendering any attempt at saying it pointless – Double AA Aug 20 '20 at 23:03

    Anything for Hashem I offer it up to Him until I am more educated on Hebrew. But according to another website I was also reading, its pronounced just the way its written "Yod, Kei, B'vav, Kei." Also I just learned reading this prayer is the custom of Sephardim. – andy hanukaai Aug 20 '20 at 23:29

  • It's in the Lishem Yichud prayer. There is a translation for these words in my Sephardic siddur. I hadn't learned what the apostrophes were for yet. – andy hanukaai Aug 21 '20 at 0:13

It's pronounced "Yud Kay b'Vov Kay." See footnote here.
