In case you were wondering about that minyan on the USS Harry S Truman, be assured it also has its own Sefer Torah.

Here it is after being presented to Captain Herman Shelansky on the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier he commands, on June 24 last year in Norfolk, Va.

It's one of the few Torah scrolls from Lithuania to survive the Holocaust, in which many of Shelanski's family members perished.
