Shalom! Ma shlomkha/shlomekh/shlomkhem?


Explanation:
In Hebrew characters:

שלום! מה שלומך/שלומכם

The spelling of shalom is shin-lamed-vav-mem sofit.
The spelling of ma is mem-he.
The spelling of shlomkha/shlomekh is
shin-lamed-vav-mem-khaf sofit.
The spelling of shlomkhem is shin-lamed-vav-mem-khaf-mem sofit.

"Shalom" means hello, goodbye and peace. It is the greeting formula in Israel.
"Ma shlomkha/shlomekh/shlomkhem?" means how are you. "Shlomkha" is said to a man. "Shlomekh" is said to a woman.
"Shlomkhem" is said to a group of people.
The pronunciation of "kh" is as the pronunciation of "ch" in the Scottish word lock.
