Awesome Podcast!

I live in Canada and listen to your podcast several times a week.
I am Jew who became a Christian that was looking for great content about the Torah and Jewish holidays. I found it here!
Christians would benefit greatly from your very informative podcast. I have already shared your podcast with friends at our church.
I love how you teach that Jewish holidays are about celebration and food! Really enjoyed the episode on Yom Kippur and your points on returning back to God. This has a very different meaning than repentance.

Keep up the excellent content!
