Mishlei 11:22 - Like a Golden Ring in the Snout of a Pig
נֶזֶם זָהָב בְּאַף חֲזִיר אִשָּׁה יָפָה וְסָרַת טָעַם:
This evening (6/13/22), in our final Monday Night Mishlei Shiur of the year, we learned a very straightforward pasuk - but such straightforwardness can make things deceptively nuanced. We ended up arriving at several different approaches. We concluded the shiur with a reflection on how our year of Monday Night Mishlei went, and - at the request of one of our regular participants - we talked about how everyone either can improve or has improved. It's been a great year, and I can't wait to resume, whenever that may be!
