comment Why does Rashi say that a hey at the end = a lamed at the beginning so many times?
@DoubleAA I don't think that that would be a good source for the OP as this answer is not consistent with the Lubavitcher Rebbe's approach to Rashi; he learns (as explained in Klallei Rashi Chapter 7) that Rashi assumes the learner is studying in order. Regarding the end of that Rashi about agada, see Alex's comment here.

@DoubleAA The sefer כללי רש"י details the Lubavitcher Rebbe's approach to learning Rashi. In Chapter 3 he explains the idea that Rashi is geared to the level of a "ben chomesh l'mikra"; since the Torah is written in a style that is understood to a five year old, and Rashi's objective is explain the simple meaning of the Torah (see Rashi Breishis 3:8 for example), it follows his commentary is written for someone on such a level.

@DoubleAA I guess from Pirkey Avos "Ben Chamesh Lamikra"

@Ariel Though the Lubavitcher Rebbe also says that Rashi assumes the student to be learning Chumash in order
