Question
Shalom dear Rabbi, my name is Valentin and I’m a noahide, I have a question about the Torah if that’s ok? in Devarim 22:23-24 we read the following: 23 “If a girl who is a virgin is engaged to a man, and another man comes upon her in the town and has sexual relations with her; 24 you are to bring them both out to the gate of the city and stone them to death — the girl because she didn’t cry out for help, there in the city, and the man because he has humiliated his neighbor’s wife. In this way you will put an end to such wickedness among you. my question is this: is that woman a rape victim that hasn’t screamed loud enough, or is it a woman that was having consensual intercourse with someone that was not her fiancé? Because if she was raped but couldn’t scream because she was knocked out, or gagged, how is stoning her justified? thanks in advance for your answer!

Question
Hi, Jehovah's Witness organization has applied Deuteronomy 19:15 to child sexual abuse, and their policy for many years has been to NOT call the police, or even look into the matter if only one parent or child reports that they have been abused. I see that some translations do not use the wording "rise up against", rather, they use the wording "convict" on the basis of only one witness.   So, I was curious what has been the historic and modern day Jewish understanding and application of this?   Thanks, from Tucson, Arizona.  

Question
My husband thinks when I try to delve more deeply with my questions , comments, opinions into his ideas, he says I am starting an argument. He studies Torah 1x week with a rabbi. My thinking is that my probing, alternate opinions/ideas is similar to what he does in his Chavrusa: questioning, debating, interpreting among 2 or more people to, possibly, or not, consider other theories. To not take personally what I’m saying or calling it negative thinking but to engage in a probing (peaceful & respectful) discussion.
