Q. How can I search for words and phrases in the Hebrew Bible, Talmud, Tosefta, Mishneh Torah?
If you are looking for words or phrases in any of these works, go to http://www.mechon-mamre.org/c/ct/c_search.htm and enter the search terms. The page is equipped with a virtual Hebrew keyboard (requires Unicode compliant operating system). Alternately, you can search the Mechon Mamre site using Google Advanced Search (http://www.google.com/advanced_search). In the box labeled "Domain" enter the URL http://www.mechon-mamre.org and enter the words or phrases in the boxes at the top of the page. To search a single word or various words, enter the terms in the box labled "with all of the words" or the box "with at least one of the words"; to search a phrase, enter it in the box "with the exact phrase" (tip: in Google, an exact phrase can be searched by placing it within quotes " "). If you wish to exclude a specific word or words from the search, place these terms in the box labeled "without the words" or place a minus sign - before it.
