Q. Can you please tell me what the proper Hebrew spelling for Newmarket would be? And when writing it on a Kesubah, would it be proper to identify Newmarket (Ontario, Canada), as
הסמוכה לוואן or as הסמוכה לטאראנטא ?
A. Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that the spelling is נומארקעט (nun vov mem alef reish kuf ayin tes), without any Hasemucho.
Horav Aharon Miller Shlit’a explained that his father maintains it is spelled without an alef after the vov as New Jersey would be, because it is one single word.
Horav Dovid Pam’s Shlit’a opinion is similar. However, Horav Moshe M. Lowy’s Shlit’a opinion is that yo do write, “Hasemucho LeToronto.”
