Unpacking: Chasidut (חסידות) piety, godliness, devoutness
Unpacking the Hebrew word "chasidut" using the meanings of the letters and gematria.

4+8+8=20 (כ) or (יי)
Chasidut (חֲסִידוּת), reverent diligence, is the essence of the cycles of turn and return that connect past, present and possible futures.
