הוֹן יֹסִיף רֵעִים רַבִּים וְדָל מֵרֵעֵהוּ יִפָּרֵד:
This morning (12/24/20 at YBT) we continued our analysis of the pasuk we began yesterday. We found support for both of the approaches we started yesterday. I interjected with a pitch for why the activity of watching movies makes for an excellent supplement to Mishlei, and quoted a scene from "Nixon" (1995) to support my pshat. We then went through several explanations given by the meforshim, concluding with some methodology from the Meiri.
