Confrontation with doubt is a central topic throughout the world of Talmudic literature. In our religious world of serving God, both for interpersonal issues and our spiritual experience, we constantly deal with doubt, both explicit and implicit. How should we live our lives as we are surrounded by doubt? This will analyze various Halakhic topics that will enrich our spiritual and intellectual discourse regarding the world of doubt.
We will touch upon two main topics:
1. When are we stringent out of doubt? Is stringency born of doubt a biblical or rabbinic principle?
2. What situations create doubt? Is our only resort to certainty through the testimony of two witnesses?
