‘Star Trek’ fan President Obama flashes Vulcan hand gesture in picture with Nichelle Nichols

Actress Nichelle Nichols posted a picture of herself in the Oval Office with President Obama, both showing the geeky Vulcan “Live long and prosper” hand gesture. The culturally historic meeting brings the fan base to a universe where it has never gone before, even for nerdy Trekkies who can recite Shakespearean sonnets in Klingon.

MAZELLTOFF!...Now OBAMA is a JEW!...His two drunken Muslim Fathers would THROW UP!..Both Star Trek Stars are of Jewish origin...It was natural for them to call on this old religious gesture..Very theatrical!.OUI VEY!

The Vulcan greeting is based upon a blessing gesture used by the kohanim (koe-hah-NEEM) during the worship service. The kohanim are the genealogical descendants of the Jewish priests who served in the Jerusalem Temple. Modern Jews no longer have priests leading services as in ancient times, nor do we have animal sacrifices anymore.(Yes, people really do ask about that!) The sacrificial system ended with the destruction of the Temple by the Romans in the year 70. C.E. However, a remnant of the Temple service lives on in the "kohane blessing" ritual (duchenen in Yiddish) that is performed on certain holy days.
