Dear Rabbi Raskin, why does a woman have the credibility of two witnesses? Does that mean that a woman is not capable of lying? Honesty is the best policy, as the old saying. There is no need to lie when we have respect for ourselves and the conviction of what we speak is the truth. Whether others approved of our words or not. But, I believe that at one point or another in our lives there is a lie hidden in our heart, G-d forbid! I do not remember lying to anyone in my life because I am straight-forward. And I speaking as a woman. Reply
