As I was preparing for Shabbat I heard the sad news of the passing of Leonard Nemoy z”l. He was an icon of an actor breathing life into the character of Spock from Star Trek. In is memory I suggest seeing this worthy commercial:
As an actor he never shied away from his Jewish identity. Quiet the opposite is true. Nemoy brought Judaism to the masses with the character of Spock. Tonight and forever when I bless my children with the priestly blessing it will carry the connotations of Spock’s blessing to “Live Long and Prosper”. May his memory be for a blessing.
To understand the origin of this check out this interview (around 11:30 minute mark).
