Oral, Not Written Testimony – Gefet 71

Can you send written testimony to a rabbinical court or do you need to go in person? What happens to the witness during his testimony in court? How can the court assess if the witness is testifying truthfully? These questions will be explored in this week鈥檚 Gefet.
