(NEWS) The US Army Needs A Torah Scroll

"Ah, the things you can learn by searching the many websites devoted to government contracting, job recruitment and materiel.

The U.S. Army wants a Torah scroll.

And not just any Torah scroll: they want a Sephardic Torah -- that is, a Torah prepared especially by and for Jews of Sephardic, or Spanish, descent. Why? One's mind conjures up all sorts of special operations scenarios, but probably, the Army needs a new Torah for observant Jews who go through basic training. A good Torah will cost you about $40,000."
