English term or phrase: A shepherd\'s staff
Dear Sir,
Re: A shepherd's staff (French: Baton pastoral). I was wondering how this would be said in Hebrew? Any help is really appreciated. I will also need the translation in a Romanized script. (Actually I like the International Phonetic Script / IPS the best but the fonts for it don't seem to exist on the Internet). Thanks again!

Sincerely,

maTEH [ha-]ro'IM
Explanation:
maTHE = staff [of]

[ha-]ro'IM = [the] shepherds

The article is optional for a general noun like this. Hebrew often uses the plural as modifier where English uses the singular.
