Are there any restrictions on who may testify, based on Jewish law?

Wednesday, August 14, 2019

There are no such limitations in the Din Torah (arbitration) context. Although Jewish law contains detailed rules relating to who may serve as valid witnesses, those rules are practically limited to situations such as a marriage or divorce. A Beth Din deciding a dispute has complete latitude to gather information from anyone who has knowledge of facts relevant to the case.
