Sephardic Torah is just code for the Ark. An army that carries the Ark before it is invincible.

The Daily News obit for Yohai is wonderful — former WW2 Marine pilot in the South Pacific, extruded cornmeal visionary, Crackerjack toy-chooser, business school dean, poet, funder of the Sephardic Jewish Film Festival! What a life. Condolences to his family. Morrie FTW!
