There's currently a that contains questions about both emunah, which I generally understand to mean something like "belief in God," and bitachon, which I generally understand to mean "trust in God's goodness to us."

Should we split this into two tags and retag the associated 13 questions as necessary?

Note that there currently exists a separate tag containing one question about bitachon, so I guess what I'm calling for is:

  • Rename to faith-emunah.

  • Remove it from all questions that are not about emunah.

  • Add the tag all of the 13 questions that are about bitachon, whether they're also about emunah, or not.

  • Provide tag wikis for both tags that are clear enough to distinguish them from each other.

  • 1
    This proposal would be improved by including proposed tag wikis, to better indicate which questions you are trying to split out of the existing conglomerate tag.

I agree and propose the following tag wikis:

Questions about trusting God, Omnibenificence, and Divine Providence in human affairs

Questions regarding the tenets of Jewish faith, and Jewish "theological doctrine" in as much as that term can be applied.

  • On second thought, I think we should combine Emunah and theology

  • The technical term in my experience is omnibenevolence.
