HaGashem or HaGeshem


Rav Moshe Feinstein ruled that one says "Mashiv haRuach uMorid haGashem" in the amidah, with a kamatz under the gimel in the last word, in order to indicate the end of a sentence.

Rav Herschel Schachter (Nefesh haRav pg. 121) cites Rav Soloveichik as ruling otherwise, that it should be "haGeshem", since the prayer regarding rain is an integral part of the rest of the berachah in which it appears.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 4:40:15)

Have a great day,
