Sheep and Wolves

Gleaning from the Haggadah:

Quote:
Leviticus 11:7 The Swine - Although it has true hoofs, wihth the Hoofs cleft through, it Does not chew the cud.

When the pig is resting, he streches out his legs in fromnt of him, displaying his cleft hoofs. "How kosher I am!" he seems to say, making no mention of the fact that he does not chew the cud. He symbolizes the hypocrite who parades his virtues and conceals his faults.
