The Mishlei Podcast

Rabbi Matt Schneeweiss

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! read less

Turns out, it was! We ended up learning five solid ideas: three developed by us, one from Rabbeinu Yonah, and another from the Meiri. Every pasuk in Mishlei pertains to decision-making, but this was one of those pesukim which were EXPLICITLY about decision-making as a whole, in addition to being a key pasuk about how to strengthen one's relationship with Hashem.-----מקורות:משלי טז:ב-ג; כא:ל-לאמצודת ציון/דודתרגום רס"גרבינו יונהEpictetus - Enchiridion 1:1מאיריקהלת יב:ידhttps://rabbischneeweiss.substack.com/p/my-gemara-rebbis-advice-to-graduates-of-----The Torah content for the first half of July has been sponsored by Rachayl with “a heartfelt thank you.” Summer is now fully underway!

This pasuk seemed intuitive on the surface, but we ended up with a bunch of related yet distinct groundbreaking ideas about everything from self-knowledge to self-confidence to self-improvement and its obstacles. Mishlei certainly has a way of prompting you to take a MUCH closer look at an otherwise well-trodden idea, revealing new depth and layers of application.-----מקורות:משלי טז:א-ב; כא:ברבינו יונה - משלי א:כב; טז:במצודת ציון/דודרמב"ם - משנה תורה: ספר המדע, הלכות תשובה ב:ח-----The Torah content for the first half of July has been sponsored by Rachayl with “a heartfelt thank you.” Summer is now fully underway!

This pasuk was incredibly easy to translate, but yielded far more questions than we expected. We came up with several approaches which overlapped with each other and with the meforshim with one approach which was completely different. All of the ideas were practical and shed a new light on an often overlooked quality of Mishleic tzadikim and resha'im. It was a great pasuk to round out another great year of Monday Night Mishlei.

We then spent the rest of shiur learning the main idea underlying the Ri Nachmias's approach. The overall thrust of the statements of Chazal he cited was that non-Jews are incapable of doing tzedakah and chesed lishmah. On the surface, this seems like a rather bigoted statement. But after we analyzed it, we recognized its truth and profundity and we even managed to develop a nice approach to our pasuk on that basis.-----מקורות:משלי יד:לדרבינו יונהר"י נחמיאשירמיהו ט:כג (of course)אבות ב:ג-----The Torah content for this week has been sponsored by Judah and Naomi Dardik in honor of Rabbi Moskowitz's second yahrzeit and in appreciation for all those whose love of Torah and excitement for ideas shines in their teaching.-----If you've gained from what you've learned here, please consider contributing to my Patreon at www.patreon.com/rabbischneeweiss.

Why is this such a big deal? Because FUN FACT: the term "tzedakah," "tzedek," and "tzadik" appear in Mishlei a total of 93 times, whereas the terms "chesed" and "chasid" appear only 12. In other words, it's not a typical Mishlei topic. With that at the back of our minds, we began analyzing today's pasuk, came up with some nice approaches, reviewed the Rambam's definitions of chesed and tzedakah, and concluding by reading a mystifying Rabbeinu Yonah. We'll begin tomorrow (בג"ה) with that Rabbeinu Yonah, followed by more meforshim.-----מקורות:משלי יד:לדתרגום רס"גתרגום כתוביםרמב"ם - מורה הנבוכים ג:נגמצודת דודרבינו יונה-----The Torah content for this week has been sponsored by Judah and Naomi Dardik in honor of Rabbi Moskowitz's second yahrzeit and in appreciation for all those whose love of Torah and excitement for ideas shines in their teaching.-----If you've gained from what you've learned here, please consider contributing to my Patreon at www.patreon.com/rabbischneeweiss.

Well, much to my surprise, we came away with not one, not two, but ELEVEN interpretations! :O Eight of our own, and three from the meforshim. I believe that's a record ... not that it's a contest. Not only did we strike gold with the quantity of ideas, but also the quality. And we barely even scratched the surface of the meforshim! I'm really pleased with the ideas and the teamwork we engaged in to get there.-----מקורות:משלי יג:כגתרגום ופירוש רס"גמצודת ציון/דודמאירירמב"ם - ספר המדע, הלכות תלמוד תורה ה:יב-יג -----The Torah content for this week has been sponsored by Judah and Naomi Dardik in honor of Rabbi Moskowitz's second yahrzeit and in appreciation for all those whose love of Torah and excitement for ideas shines in their teaching.-----If you've gained from what you've learned here, please consider contributing to my Patreon at www.patreon.com/rabbischneeweiss.

I thought we'd get bogged down in the jargon, but instead, we developed several really nice ideas! The biggest question on all of our ideas was: "What is the practical application?" - a question I'd like to return to tomorrow, when we review what we learned, finish analyzing Metzudas David, and move on to the other meforshim.-----מקורות:משלי יד:לגתרגום רס"גמצודת דודמשלי יח:ב-----The Torah content this week has been dedicated by me in honor of Ann with gratitude for her monthly support of my Torah content and in celebration of her engagement to Ben.

You know the expression, "you win some, you lose some"? Well, that doesn't apply in Mishlei EVEN when you don't emerge from a learning session with a clear, succinct, satisfactory explanation. Why not? Because so much of the benefit of learning Mishlei comes from the analysis and discussion itself. Today, we pretty much ended up where we were yesterday as far as a conclusive understanding goes. Sure, we made some NICE moves and explored some intriguing possibilities, but this was one of the few Mishlei shiurim (out of the 530+ shiurim I've recorded over the past four years) in which I felt like we NEEDED a third session. Tzarich iyun, as they say! -----מקורות:משלי יד:לבמצודת דודרבינו יונהמאירימלבי"םרלב"גהואיל משהאבן עזרא כת"ימיוחס לרד"קר"י נחמיאש-----The Torah content from now through Lag ba'Omer has been generously sponsored by Malky M.

We quickly developed a few approaches, all of which were fruitful. We began learning the Metzudas David which we'll continue working on tomorrow before learning some other meforshim.

Next, we learned the Malbim's idea, which took us into my favorite comments from the Malbim on Iyov in which he spells out his views on hashgachah. At the very end, we speculated on what type of derech nistar idea the Meiri might give, but we'll have to wait until next week (בג"ה) because the Meiri learns this week's pasuk as connected to next week's.

Send me a text!Mishlei 13:20 - How We're Affected By Our Peersהוֹלֵךְ אֶת חֲכָמִים יֶחְכָּם וְרֹעֶה כְסִילִים יֵרוֹעַ:Length: 1 hour 25 minutesSynopsis: Tonight (5/6/24), in our Monday Night Mishlei shiur, we learned a really nice "starter pasuk" which is perfect for both the newcomer to Mishlei and for seasoned veterans. We came up with three approaches, each of which was further developed with the help of the meforshim, and we came up with plenty of real-world examples for each approach. It's great to be back to our regular Mishlei schedule!-----מקורות:משלי יג:כמצודת ציון/דודמלבי"םרמב"ם - ספר המצוות: עשה ו,יארמב"ם - משנה תורה: ספר המדע, הלכות דעות ו:ארבינו יונהמדרש משליר' עובדיה מברטנורא - אבות א:יב-----I'd like to thank Aaron K. for sponsoring this week's Torah content.
