How to pronounce Judaism

I’m Jewish (Reform) but all my life (I grew up in the US, but today I live in Canada) I’ve heard two very different pronunciations of the word Judaism.

The first (and probably most commonly-used) pronunciation sounds like “Judy-ism.”

The second pronunciation sounds like “Jew-day-ism.”

Personally, I prefer the second pronunciation, but just because I prefer something doesn’t mean it’s necessarily correct.

So which is the proper pronunciation?
