Leonard Simon Nimoy was born in Boston on 26 March 1931. His parents were Jewish immigrants from the Ukraine who raised their son with the Yiddish language. Nimoy never denied his Jewish identity and I don’t actually need to tell you that he was Jewish. I think it was widely known anyway. The same with William Shatner who is Jewish himself.
I grew up with the Enterprise, Captain Kirk and Mister Spock. Until today, I love watching the old Star Trek but don’t like the new episodes. 🙂
Leonard Nimoy died at the age of 83 on 27 February 2015.
