1) Continuation from last class: perhaps Bitachon is simply not worrying, but not that all that will happen will be overtly good. 2) The rejection of this idea. The Rebbe (quotes the Chovas HaLivavos and) proves that Bitachon MUST mean that one believes that all in his life will be overtly good. Page 3-4.

Bitachon and Emuna are not philosophies but levels of connection. The difference is whether one views Hashem as doing only overt good. Question: Why would one have trust, perhaps he had forfeited it with his sin? Page 2-3.

Question: Rashi's issue is that Moshe was afraid and yet didn't escape.The Rebbe's question is why does Rashi bring both Pshatutim, Pshat and Midrash. The Pshat must have some merit also. Page 1-2.

Continued, why relatives shouldn't be able to be objective. Why does Torah consider being an informer so bad. It is unnatural to expose relatives. Page One.
