- Prohibition


Do not deny a monetary claim


 “Do not deal falsely” Vayikra 19:11


This is a warning against the denial of articles of value worth a coin of minimal amount and above.


It includes all kinds of monetary matters-

Something entrusted for safekeeping, a loan, whether he robbed or cheated him, a lost object that has not been returned.


If he was sued for it and he gave a false denial, he violates this prohibition and becomes disqualified from being a witness.


This applies in all places at all times for man and woman.
