7) [line 34] RESHUSH HA'RABIM L'TUMAH (SAFEK TUMAH B'RESHUSH HA'RABIM)
(a) When there is a doubt as to whether an object is Tahor or Tamei, if the
object is found in Reshus ha'Rabim the object is Tahor. If it is found in a
private, concealed place, it is judged to be Tamei.
(b) This is learned from the case of the Sotah woman (Bamidbar 5; see
Background to Berachos 63, #6). In the case of a Sotah, where only two
people were about at the time that there arose a question as to her status,
she is judged Tamei/culpable. Similarly, whenever there are only two people
present (i.e. Reshus ha'Yachid l'Tuma'ah), if a doubt arises regarding the
status of an object it is judged to be Tamei. Whenever more than two people
frequent a certain area (i.e. Reshus ha'Yachid l'Tuma'ah), if a doubt arises
regarding the status of an object it is judged to be Tahor.
