- Brief Insight
TESTIMONY FROM A DOCUMENT
The Mishnah says that a woman may get remarried on the basis of a witness in the name of another witness or on the basis of the testimony of a maidservant. The Rif quotes the Yerushalmi that if a document is found stating that a woman's husband died, the wife may get remarried on the basis of the testimony of that document. The Rambam says that we allow the wife to get remarried on the basis of the document only if we recognize the handwriting to be Jewish writing.
- Quick Halachah
THE TESTIMONY OF ONE WITNESS
If a witness comes to a woman privately and tells her that her husband died, there is no longer any need for his testimony; the woman may come to Beis Din and say that her husband died, and she is permitted to remarry. However, if the witness that she is quoting denies that he said that her husband died, she may not remarry. (Shulchan Aruch EH 17:8)
If a woman says that witnesses told her that her husband drowned and that the Beis Din permitted her to remarry, she is believed. (Beis Shmuel)
