For searching techniques and examples of how to construct a search, see Responsa’s “Help” page. While the search techniques for the online database differ from those offered on the CDROM versions with which many people are familiar, following the directions under “Help” should lead to comparable results.
Interface Language Hebrew, English or French may be chosen as the interface language by clicking on the appropriate flag at the top left corner of the screen. Searching is in Hebrew. If you do not have a Hebrew keyboard use the virtual keyboard by clicking on the keyboard icon near the search box.
