If you are Jewish and interested in Star Trek, I think this is your book. Granted, many of the things that were referred to were obvious (Vulcan salute anyone?) there are others I did not think about until I read this book such as the similarities between Jews and say Bajorans. This book covers TOS; TNG, DS9, VOY, ENT (also a little TAS) and all movies up to "Reboot" (aka 2009) as well as many of the books.
In my book Jewish Themes in Star Trek, I wrote: Candles lit for the Jewish Festival of Lights. On several occasions, while writing this book, I was told that a Hanukkah party had indeed been mentioned in The Next Generation series. Unfortunately, the story turned out to be nothing more than another urban legend.
Yonassan Gershom is a Rabbi and writer who was ordained in the Jewish Renewal movement during the 1980s and is now a follower of Breslov Hasidism. He was associated with the early days of the B'nai Or movement, a forerunner of Jewish Renewal, in which he was ordained by Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi in 1986, although he is not in agreement with the direction that the movement has taken in more recent years.

Inspired by a class he taught at the Minneapolis Talmud Torah, the book explores such things as: The Jewish origin of the Vulcan salute; How Vulcan culture is based on rabbinical Judaism; "Who is a Jew" among Trek characters in episodes, movies and the novels; How Talmudic logic helped expand the Star Trek universe; Why Ferengi values are NOT Jewish values
