On the day I graduated from Bethel Seminary as I was walking across the platform to be hooded the former Dean of the seminary Dr. John Lillis gestured to me Spock’s “Live Long and Prosper” ‪#‎LLAL‬ greeting, and I returned it. After the ceremony Dr. Lillis told me that the gesture came from Nimoy’s childhood when at Jewish services he saw the rabbis make the sign of the letter “shin” (שׁ) which symbolizes the Jewish prayer the Shema: “Hear oh Israel the LORD our God is one.”
