Leonard Nimoy z'l'

PEACE BE UPON LEONARD NIMOY, who, by his own account, adapted his Vulcan hand salute from a Jewish ritual he saw (well, peeked at, actually) in Synagogue as a boy. The sign represents the letter Shin (שׁ). Back in 2004 I noted the story of the salute here.

He lived long and prospered. May his memory be for a blessing.
