I'm pretty sure they don't pronounce geminated consonants as such. But, let's just wait until Dan enlightens us with his more extensive experience. :) -Stephen (Steg) "Matters deteriorated even further during the reign of Alexander Yannai, who used Greek soldiers against Jewish rebels, crucifying dozens of them, and conducting a merciless war against the Pharisees. This ruthless king became a subject for admiration only after his death. Paradoxically, his widow Salome Alexandra would be remembered for her close cooperation with the Pharisees. It would seem that in rabbinical tradition no Jewish monarch could be considered good unless dead or female." ~ 'a historical atlas of the jewish people'
