Date Placed: December 12, 2012

Location: I.J. & Jeanné Wagner Jewish Community Center, 2 North Medical Drive, Salt Lake City, Salt Lake, Utah

ATTENTION!!! A new geocache has just been placed
less than 5 feet from this letterbox. It is absolutely
ESSENTIAL that you dig the bark out of the hole before
placing the box back in its spot, and COMPLETELY cover
the box with bark after rehiding so it is invisible to
those searching for the geocache. Thank you!

I received this stamp for the Secret Santa 2012 swap from boblovesmusic who lives in North Grafton, Massachusetts. Thanks for sending this lovely stamp to our neck of the woods! :)

Dear GreenJello,

Happy Holidays to you and your family! This stamp I'm particularly proud of. First of all, it's probably the most complicated and difficult carve I've ever done, and it came out even better than I could have hoped for! Second, it relates to both my love of Star Trek and to my cultural and spiritual upbringing in Judaism. The famous Vulcan salute (Love Long and Prosper) you see on Star Trek was inspired by a traditional Jewish priestly blessing performed by a Kohanim. The gesture is supposed to look like the Hebrew letter Shin (ש). Leonard Nimoy was raised in a traditional Jewish home so he was exposed to this and thought it would make for a great "alien" salute. Pretty neat I think!

Anyways, I hope you enjoy it! And I hope you have a wonderful holiday season filled with celebration and happiness!

Directions: Find the street lamp on the north end of the parking lot. Walk 10 steps east. The box is hidden behind the second large retaining wall block in the concrete cubby hole, covered in bark.
