YouTube: Leonard Nimoy's Jewish Story
Shin (also spelled Šin (šīn) or Sheen) literally means "teeth", "press", and "sharp"; It is the twenty-first letter in many Semitic abjads, including Phoenician𐤔, Aramaic/Hebrewש, and Arabicش (in abjadi order, 13th in modern order). Its sound value is a voiceless sibilant, [ʃ] or [s].
In JudaismShin also stands for the word Shaddai, a name for God. Because of this, a kohen (priest) forms the letter Shin with his hands as he recites the Priestly Blessing. In the mid 1960s, actor Leonard Nimoy used a single-handed version of this gesture to create the Vulcan hand salute for his character, Mr. Spock, on Star Trek.
