Mishlei 11:24 - Why You Should Scatter Your Money and Your Knowledge
יֵשׁ מְפַזֵּר וְנוֹסָף עוֹד וְחֹשֵׂךְ מִיֹּשֶׁר אַךְ לְמַחְסוֹר
Tonight (9/19/22), in our Monday Night Mishlei Shiur, we learned a pasuk which was both vague and tricky to read. After a rocky start, we ended up developing five different approaches, augmented by three meforshim! Not only were these ideas eminently practical, but they happen to be the perfect Mishlei idea to prepare us for the Aseres Ymei Teshuvah, when tzedakah-giving is valued at a premium.
