Naar (The Youth)

$3
/ month
The most basic audience in Mishlei is the naar, or "Mishleic youth." One of the purposes of Mishlei is "to provide a youth with knowledge and design" (Mishlei 1:4), and that is what I hope you will attain from my content. Why $3? Shlomo ha'Melech says: "Where one can be overpowered, two can resist attack, [but] a three-ply cord is not easily severed" (Koheles 4:12). I intended to have $1 as the minimum donation, but Patreon said it's too little of an amount (due to processing fees). Then I went to $2 and Patreon said it's still too little. When I got to $3, Patreon said that's fine. So that's the minimum amount. Also, I feel like $3 a month is reasonable for those "youths" who partake of my content.

Chacham (The Wise)

$10
/ month
Shlomo ha'Melech says: "acquire wisdom" (Mishlei 4:5), "the beginning of wisdom is to acquire wisdom" (ibid. 4:7), and "How much better than fine gold is the acquisition of wisdom!" (ibid. 16:16). If you feel you've acquired wisdom from my content and feel obliged to support the production of further content, then your support will be much appreciated!

Navon (The Understanding)

$20
/ month
Shlomo ha'Melech says: "acquire understanding" (Mishlei 4:5), "from your every acquisition acquire understanding" (ibid. 4:7), and "the acquisition of understanding is choicer than silver" (ibid. 16:16). To become a chacham (wise person) is the first level of Mishleic development, but to become a navon (understanding person) is even higher.

Tzadik (The Righteous)

$50
/ month
Shlomo ha'Melech says: "One who pursues tzedakah and chesed will find life, tzedakah, and honor" (Mishlei 21:21). If you are willing to give $50 per month, then you are clearly doing so for tzedek - for the sake of the system, and not merely for your own benefit. And, as the pasuk says, your act of tzedakah will result in further tzedakah. It's guaranteed!

Chasid (The Super Generous)

$100
/ month
"Chasid" doesn't appear as one of Mishlei's personality types. The closest thing is: "A person of kindness brings good upon himself, but a cruel person troubles his flesh" (Mishlei 11:17). If you have pledged $100 a month, then you certainly qualify as an "ish chesed" in my book, and I will do everything I can to make sure that your act of chesed results in "bringing good upon yourself" through the content I produce.

About Rabbi Matt Schneeweiss

Goals
100% complete
My first goal for this Patreon is to recoup the costs I've paid out of pocket to produce content I've made from September through November. These costs include the following items:
- Webcam: $64.90
- Microphone: $76.20
- Ring Light: $39.78
- Backdrop: $14.89
- Zoom Subscription (before yeshiva paid): $45
- Loom Subscription (for a year): $96
- Podcast Hosting Fees (higher than it will be going forward because of backlog of content, and uncertain because there are 20 days left in the month): $100+
Total: somewhere between $420 - $500, depending on how much more content I upload this month
