About some jewish surnames
I want to know how to pronounce those ended in "-stein", like Bernstein, Wainstein, Goldstein, etc.: is it [-steen] or [-styn]? Is there any rule? Thanks.

Each one of them is pronounced how the person pronounces it. If you go by the German pronounciation, they are pronounced "shtine". If you go by the English one, it varies.
