first, you seem to be using Homebrew R so you're pretty much on your own (=ask the Homebrew maintainer) since we don't support that. (In official R you do NOT want to use sudo as Jeff pointed out)

That said, you can try the latest rJava 0.9-10 version (see http://rforge.net/rJava ) which is trying to work around the issue of Java 10 lacking javah and provide feedback.
There are more macOS changes in the making to work around other Oracle issues so once the full batch is through I'd expect a CRAN release.
