Verbal commitment to lend


A verbal commitment to lend money is binding, due to concern that verbal commitments to perform mitzvot are like vows, and because of the obligation to speak truth from one's heart. However, breaking such a commitment would not lead to liability in court.

(Pitchei Choshen Halvaah 1:16 and footnote 38)

Have a great day,
