I am positive I heard this during Yom Kippur services a couple of decades ago.

Subby, did you hear this at services yesterday?

Well... technically it's the "spocker," but at least it isn't the "minivan."

/I know... "that's the joke"

I first read Nimoy's anecdotes on this topic before my first p'onn farr. Old news is old, like knowing space will be colonized by Jews, Canadians and Canadian Jews.

I learned later that it is believed that during this prayer, the "Shekhina," the feminine aspect of God comes into the temple to bless the congregation. The light from this Deity could be very damaging. So we are told to protect ourselves by closing our eyes.
I peeked.
And when I saw the split-fingered gesture of these men... I was entranced. I learned to do it simply because it seemed so magical.


Does this mean the vulcan salute is actually the jewish sign for snatch?

The only reason I know this is because I roomed with a Trekkie my first year of college.

No, that's the Mogen David.  (A little joke we've been playing on the Mormons for the last hundred years or so - don't tell).

Alas, you can't often roll up the rim.

No, just stumbled across it and thought it was interesting enough for a green light.

You can technically have a bacon cut of other animals, most notably beef.

Maybe a better example would be pork rinds?
 
2013-09-15 07:34:01 PM
Yusta eat pork rinds, purely as a subvert-the-childhood-conditioning thing. Then I got one with a hair still growing out of it.  I'm done now.

BTW the prayer the hand gesture goes with is called "The Priestly Blessing" which is the oldest known biblical text found, which dates from around 600 BCE. The translation of prayer is

May the Lord bless you and keep you.
May the Lord let His face shine upon you and be gracious to you.
May the Lord look kindly upon you and give you peace.

Now for all of you Civilization 4 addicts this should sound familiar because this is what Leonard Nimoy says when you discover the "Priesthood" tech in the game.
