The Mishlei Podcast

My name is Rabbi Matt Schneeweiss, and this is the hub for all of my shiurim (classes) on Sefer Mishlei, a.k.a. The Book of Proverbs! Generally speaking we will follow the approach to Mishlei outlined by Saadia Gaon who views Mishlei as a guide for intelligent decision-making in everyday life with the goal of maximizing long-term pleasure and minimizing long-term pain. Each shiur will typically focus on one pasuk (verse), which we will attempt to analyze on our own before turning to the meforshim (commentators). If you have any questions feel free to email me at rabbischneeweiss at gmail. Thanks for listening!

Then we tackled the amazing Rabbeinu Yonah, which was just as good as I remembered it! We concluded with one of my favorite Rambams in the Peirush ha'Mishnayos, plus a tie-in to this week's Monday Night Mishlei pasuk, and even a little Haggadah reference. All in a day's work! This shiur will resume the second week of May (בג"ה). -----מקורות:משלי יד:כטמצודת דודרבינו יונהרמב"ם - פירוש המשניות ט:הריטב"א - הגדה של פסח: בן רשע-----The Torah content from now through Pesach has been sponsored by the Koffsky family, in loving memory of Adira (a"h), who loved big ideas and asking big questions.-----If you've gained from what you've learned here, please consider contributing to my Patreon at www.patreon.com/rabbischneeweiss.

Despite the difficutlies, we were rewarded (a) with several of our own interpretations of the pasuk, (b) some fundamental but nuanced insights into psychology from Metzudas David and Rabbeinu Yonah, and (c) a guest appearance by Shadal whose commentary dovetailed nicely with one of the major themes of Pesach!-----מקורות:משלי יג:יטתרגום רס"גמצודת דודרבינו יונהשד"לאברבנאל - אבות ו:בריטב"א - הגדה של פסח, בן רשע-----The Torah content from now through Pesach has been sponsored by the Koffsky family, in loving memory of Adira (a"h), who loved big ideas and asking big questions.-----If you've gained from what you've learned here, please consider contributing to my Patreon at www.patreon.com/rabbischneeweiss.

We came up with some nice ideas, too. Not sure whether a Part 2 of this shiur will be fortcoming or whether this is it for now. Note: for some weird reason, Zoom split the recording, resulting in the last 9 minutes being made into a separate file. Since I don't know the first thing about video editing, and since the last 9 minutes didn't contain any earth-shattering insights, I'm not even going to upload it.

Since we had a smaller crowd than usual, we were able to proceed through our analysis quickly. We came up with seven approaches, depending on how you count. Nice ideas, if I may say so myself!-----מקורות:משלי יד:יחרבינו יונה - משלי א:כב; יד:יחתרגום רס"גתרגום כתוביםמצודת דודרלב"גהואיל משהמלבי"ם-----This week's Torah content has been made possible by my Patrons on Patreon.

What followed was one of the smoothest Mishlei analyses in memory: three of our own interpretations followed by three interpretations of the Meiri, all of which are critical for strengthening our decision-making and our relationship with the observance of halacha. The Meiri's second explanation, in particular, stands out to my mind for its revolutionary advice on how to solve a certain species of religious crisis to which certain types of people are prone. If you're looking for six practical and powerful ideas, then this pasuk is for you! -----מקורות:משלי יג:יגרס"גמצודת ציוןרלב"גמאירישולחן ערוך אורח חיים א:דאבות ב:א; ד:ב-גמאירי - אבות ב-ג-----This week's Torah content has been made possible by my Patrons on Patreon.

We came up with several approaches on our own, then read Saadia Gaon's commentary which supported the way we were thinking. Unfortunately, I realized that we might only be able to spend one day on this pasuk, so we didn't have time to go through our usual meforshim. Still came away with some nice ideas, though!-----מקורות:משלי יד:יזר"י אבן כספי פירוש שני - משלי י:א,משלי א:דבראשית יא:ותרגום ופירוש רס"גרבינו יונה-----The Torah content for this week has been sponsored by Uncle Isaac, on the occasion of the birth of his nephew — and in honor of Tamar and Isaiah on the birth of their son — Ezra Raphael.-----If you've gained from what you've learned here, please consider contributing to my Patreon at www.patreon.com/rabbischneeweiss.

We came up with two of our own approaches, and then learned a nice approach from the combined forces of the Malbim and the Meiri.-----מקורות:משלי יג:יבמשלי ג:יג-יחקהלת ה:דתרגום רס"גמצודת ציון/דודרש"ימלבי"םמאירי-----The Torah content for this week has been sponsored by Uncle Isaac, on the occasion of the birth of his nephew — and in honor of Tamar and Isaiah on the birth of their son — Ezra Raphael.-----If you've gained from what you've learned here, please consider contributing to my Patreon at www.patreon.com/rabbischneeweiss.

The syntax of this pasuk was somewhat odd, as was the juxtaposition of seemingly disparate topics - yet, we were able to learn three nice ideas: one which we developed on our own, and two from the meforshim. I was pleased to see how universally applicable two of the three ideas are, as you can tell from the title.
