Really great story. It's from Hebrew. It is the symbol for "sh", the first syllable used in Shekinah, the feminine aspect of God (the Glory of God, it's a feminine word which means to dwell/inhabit and is used to denote the Holy Spirit in Christianity) and was part of a prayer ceremony in the Jewish congregation he grew up in. It's pretty cool how he explains why he used it in Star Trek as the Vulcan salute.

Is he talking through his dentures in this video, like he did in the Star Trek reboot?
