Leonard Nimoy Explains The Origin Of The Vulcan Salute…

I am saddened to hear that Leonard Nimoy has passed away. May he rest in peace and rise again on the Last Day. Here is a clip of the story behind his improvisation of the Vulcan greeting “Live long, and prosper.” 

It has something to do with one of my favorite Hebrew letters, ש, and a memorable event from his childhood.

Roll clip!
