    Hi David. Thank you for being so simple and clear in your explanations.
    I am very intersting in 2 points that you touched int the video:
    1st is about that hebrew word Amas Ira or Ire (Reminder). Could you please tell a bit more about tha?t
    2nd is concerning Holyness. You said that it has two aspects: Separation, Perfection and Goodness (God is good). Could you explain a bit that second aspect?
