The pronunciation is bah-ROOCH, like in German, never bah-ROOK or anything else ending in a "k" sound. The final letter in hebrew is a final chaf, which always recieves a "ch" sound. For it to have a "k" sound it would have to end in koof, a completely different letter.

In the Catholic and Eastern churches, the book of Baruch is not apocryphal, but rather deuterocannonical. [noted -ed]

This name is pronounced "bah-ROOKH" or "BAH-rookh."
Pronouncing it with any other ending consonant (e.g. Bah-rook) is as incorrect as pronouncing the name Peter as Beter.
