the voice sounds like "al-zhayr" with the vowel sounding like "air." I remember being taught that it should sound more like "al-jar," with the vowel sounding like it does in "are." opinions?

It's Al-Jar. You're right.

You will find that alif is quite consistently pronounced as [æ] or [ę] in this course.
