  offramp: <vonKrolock> I will bet that this game score is not complete.

Jaffe came to the USA quite young, so I reckon his name is pronounced exactly as it looks: JAFF-EE, similar to the orange but with an E instead of an A at the end.

Chajes is much tougher. I used to pronounce it almost the same as the English word CHARGES, but the J might be a Y sound. Also the CH could be a K sound. I think we need a Ukrainian to have a look.

Dec-14-17  hemy: JAFFE name pronunciation is Yafe, "beautiful" in Hebrew (יפה).

In Russian the pronunciation of Jaffe is exactly like in Hebrew (Яфе).

<Chajes is much tougher> Indeed, the CH in this name is between the H (like in "Hava Nagila") and K.
