When Is A Single Witness Believed?

JewishPress Logo

Reb Shmuel Razavsky suggests that the reason that one witness is not believed against a chazakah is not because chazakah is greater, but rather because one witness is not believed when it comes to changing the status of anything. However, when the testimony of one witness is not changing the status quo, he is believed. In a situation where there is a doubt and there is no chazakah, one witness will be believed since he is not changing the status quo.
