Wikipedia says Shekinah  "is the English transliteration of a Hebrew noun meaning dwelling or settling, and denotes the dwelling or settling of the divine presence of God and his cosmic glory...while in proximity to the Shekinah, the connection to God is more readily perceivable. The concept is similar to that in the Gospel of Matthew 18:20: 'Where two or three are gathered together in my name there am I in their midst.' The Shekinah is associated with the transformational spirit of God."

There are several ways to pronounce it: we use She|ki¦nah (long i sound).
