Question
King Shaul tried to sacrifice the livestocks of Amalek. It seems that he wanted to tikun negative energy of Amalek. But it made HaShem angry, and ultimately HaShem took away the kingship from Shaul. Is it impossible to tikun negative energy of Amalek? Is there any specific yetzer hara which is impossible to be tikuned?

Question
Hello Rabbi, I am exploring the concept of 'coverings' as it appears throughout the Tanakh; however, I am a novice of Hebrew and was hoping you could clarify for me the scope of meaning for the word kippur, as in Yom Kippur. I know that kippur is most often translated as 'atonement', and carries with it the idea of expiation or cleansing from one's sins. I have also heard, however, that it carries with it the sense of 'covering', as in a covering over of one's sins, and that it may be related to the word kippah, as in the traditional Jewish head covering. Is 'covering' an acceptable translation of the word kippur? Many thanks for your time and consideration!

Question
What is the origin of the word “Amen”? Does it first appear in the Torah? Why do we say it after hearing a blessing? Thank you.
