Search Tips 

This search engine searches Judaism 101's glossary and index. Its results will display glossary entries that define terms and link to various pages on related subjects.

When you start to type, it will suggest matching entries from the glossary, sorted by popularity. Words that are not in the list may get results; for example, there is no glossary entry for Egypt, so it won't appear in the hint list, but a search for Egypt gets several results.

The search is case-insensitive. "Rabbi" is the same as "rabbi" or "RABBI".

The search returns glossary entries that contain ALL of your terms. If your search gets no results, the search engine will show you a list of successful alternate searches that contain some of your terms, and the number of results each alternate search. You can click the alternate search to see its results.

The search engine will attempt to eliminate unnecessary words in your searches, and adjust your spelling of Hebrew and Yiddish terms to match the way I spell those terms in the glossary and index, to increase the likelihood of getting complete and accurate results.

Avoid using words like "Jewish" or "Judaism" in your searches. Everything in this glossary is Jewish, but I don't always use that word. "Bible" gets results; "Jewish Bible" doesn't.

Avoid using plain-English searches like "What are the names of the books in the Jewish Bible?" You are much more likely to find the results you want if you simply enter one or two important words, for example, "Bible."
