Introduction to Yom Kippur

Cmdr. Joel Newman, a Rabbi aboard the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76), explains the Torah in the ships chapel during an introduction class to the Jewish religious holiday of Yom Kippur before a brief Yom Kippur service. The Torah, which was donated to the ship, was hand written about 200 years ago. Ronald Reagan is deployed to the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility.
