witnesses in order to convict
a person.
Generally speaking the
requirement of the two wit-
nesses applies to such cases
where an individual stands
to be corporally punished or
to be forced to give up his
possessions in some form. In
many cases, if it is just a
matter of establishing a
fact, one witness is usually
Acceptable.
Some Jewish commen-
taries state that the reason
for this is simply a decree of
the Almighty which is not
subject to question (i.e.
Moses Nachmanides).
Others state that if there is
only one witness then it is
simply a matter of one -
man's word (i.e. the person
on trial) against another
(the witness). Why should
we then believe one person
more than another?
Still other rabbinic
sources state that two
witnesses are required
because while it is possi-
ble that one witness
might be prejudiced
enough against the per-
N son in question to un-
justly do him harm, it is
less likely that two wit-
nesses would collude in
order to do this.
It is also mentioned in
some later sources that
Jewish law wanted to use
every possible means of giv-
ing the indicted person the
benefit of the doubt and as-
suring the court of unques-
tionable testimony in estab-
lishing the truth of the mat-
ter. While one witness may
successfully pass the test of
severe cross-examination
which the Jewish court it-
self pursues in such cases, it
is less likely that two wit-
nesses would pass this test,
since Jewish law insists
that their testimony be
identical in all respects be-
fore the person can be con-
victed.
Basicallly, the right to
take away a person's life, or
to afford him any physical
punishment or even finan-
cial punishment, is that
right which exclusively be-
longs to the Almighty. Man,
when the Almightly allows
him this right, must emu-
late the pity, restraint and
concern of the Almighty.

be the witnesses against Is-
rael for misdeeds, making
two witnesses. Similarly
does the Torah insist that
man use at least two wit-
nesses before convicting
anyone. (Numbers 35:30;
Deuteronomy 19:15)
