Half-Baked Testimony

Provided courtesy of Real Clear Daf

Daf Yomi B’iyun explores the sugya of "חצי דבר." The Gemara tells us that the Torah invalidates testimony that only provides part of the information we need. Within this discussion the Gemara makes a distinction that, at first, seems incomprehensible. We take you through some of the approaches of the Rishonim, and, along the way, gain a more sophisticated understanding of this concept.
