Mishlei 26:7 - A Mashal with a Limp (Part 1)
דַּלְיוּ שֹׁקַיִם מִפִּסֵּחַ וּמָשָׁל בְּפִי כְסִילִים:
This morning (1/3/22), in our Morning Mishlei shiur, we took a detour to start a Mishlei sugya in 26:7-9. My interest in these pesukim was prompted by a quotation from Amos Tversky (Israeli cognitive and mathematical psychologist, and recipient of the MacArthur "genius grant"). Two (and possibly three) of these pesukim are about how a Mishleic fool relates to mashalim. I'd like to do these pesukim this week, and possibly into next week. Today we had a shorter session in which we developed two approaches to 26:7. Tomorrow we'll learn the meforshim (בג"ה).
