William Shatner autograph essay signed ''William Shatner / Capt. Kirk Proud Jew'', with Shatner describing his happy memories of growing up Jewish. Composed on his personal embossed stationery, Shatner writes about ''Some Hanukkah Memories'', in full, ''First of all I'd like to say I recently released a Holiday album - I was going to call it 'Dreidel Dreidel' but then I thought better of it. Maybe I should have - maybe.

I was born in the Notre Dame de Grace neighborhood of Montreal Quebec Canada to a Conservative Jewish family - my Paternal Grandfather 'Wolfe Schattner' anglicized his family name to Shatner. All four of my grandparents were immigrants - they came from the Austria-Hungary and Russian Empires - location of present day Ukraine and Lithuania.

Third - during my childhood - the menorah stood somewhere on the mantelpiece - it was silver and black from use no matter how often it was polished - it stood there until used and then it was used with great reverence.

Fourth, my mother standing over the frying pan, pouring in a mixture of potatoes - ground-up potatoes into the sizzling fat - the oil - and frying up potato pancakes. The memory of those potato pancakes with applesauce and the family crowding around eating the pancakes is a memory that is indelible. / Happy Chanukah William Shatner / Capt. Kirk Proud Jew''. Single page measures 7.25'' x 10.5''. Near fine condition.
