Powerful New Search Tool

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Do you vaguely recall a Torah Musings essay discussing a topic that you are currently discussing? This happens to me and many others all the time. Some people email me but I don’t remember everything we’ve discussed over the past twenty years.

You now have a powerful new tool to search the twenty years of Torah Musings history. Go to the search box on the home page (on mobile, you have to scroll way down past the posts) and start typing. You will see suggestions immediately appearing. You can experiment with different searches. The search tool should be smart enough to get past typos and, hopefully, different methods of transliteration.

I have been looking for a tool that allows Natural Language Search, something like a ChatGPT that can find things for you on Torah Musings, but have not yet found it. If any readers know about something like that which does not require technical expertise, please let me know.
