I think the most complete indexing book of that kind is תורה הכתובה והמסורה by אהרן הימן. It's published by דביר in three volumes. It goes through the whole Bible verse by verse, giving for each verse a list of locations in Talmud and Midrash where the verse is mentioned in some way. It's available on HebrewBooks: vol 1 (torah) vol 2 (nevi'im) vol 3 ...

I would toss the book away. It sounds like pseudo-scholarship. Look at the end of the book and note the relative paucity of footnotes. Is Winkler credible? While he had some sort of Orthodox education, he also studied with Schater-Shalomi and now declares himself "non-denominational". A brief review of his career indicates he aligns himself with various ...

The one high school Yeshiva in North America for the deaf is Yeshivas Nefesh Dovid (http://www.nefeshdovid.com/) located in Toronto. The Rosh Yeshiva, Rabbi Chaim Tzvi Kakon, himself is deaf and got his S'micha from Ner Israel Rabbinical College in Baltimore, MD.

Nefesh HaChaim is generally considered (as I understand it) to be a "Litvish" response to Hassidism's Tanya. Though the former also addresses "derech halimud."

http://www.yutorah.org/ has halacha shiurim on a huge range of topics, both in depth and very practical. Just click on the "halacha" tab. Highly recommended. Also http://www.kolhaloshon.com/, from the more yeshivish side of things, with lots of shiurim from R' Osher Arieli and other Ram"im in the MIr Yeshiva.

Look at the introduction of the מאירי to each masechta, where he breaks down the topics of the masechta in general as well as perek by perek. (He also does that in a more perek-specific manner at the beginning of each perek.) While not usually online (and not either in English, which was not specified in the original version of the question), the ...

It's called שערי צבי - "Shaarey Tzvi" written by Rav Tzvi Rotter shlit"a (he is the son of the Shaaray Aharon). The book can be found here and can be partially viewed here.

Other answers have offered modern, more complete resources. I'll stick to basics: many, many traditional prints of Chumash and of Nach include something called Tol'dos Aharon, which lists, for each phrase, every citation of that phrase in Bavli and a few other sources. Or almost every. (And if I'm not mistaken, it doesn't count duplicates: if the same ...

The Koren Sacks Siddur is Nusach Sepharad, that is to say, the "Spanish-Portuguese" rite. Nusach Sefard is a variant similar to Ari which bears more similarity to Edot HaMizrach and Ashkenaz to Sepharad. The main differentiating point between Sepharad and Sefard is in Kabbalat Shabbat; in Sepharad, Bameh Madlikin is said, whereas in Sefard, and by extension ...

Here are some characteristics of the different translations/editions: Common Re-Print of European Edition This is ibn Tibbon's translation, but with many typos in the text. ibn Tibbon strove for word-to-word correspondence with the Arabic: makes the language very strange and off-putting to someone not used to it. But has its own charm when you get used ...

This website provides a pretty decent Hebrew commentary on most of the Yerushalmi: http://www.yedidnefesh.com/yerushalmi/yerushalmi.htm This is a website which is a great resource for Yerushalmi and has many different commentaries, manuscripts, and essays. I have not gone through all of it, but do recommend Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky's commentary, which is ...

Maarechet Hashulchan - it has the Shulchan Aruch and Rema, plus summaries of the Shach and Taz. There's a volume for taaruvot, one for melicha, and one for basar v'chalav. (Also other volumes, but those are the ones you asked about).

Some of this was summarized in a previous answer here. There are many opinions about this stuff, by the way. Rabbi Yehuda Herzl Henkin's Bnei Banim 4:16 is a MUST READ. It addresses the halachic angle on some of these matters, while Rabbi Aharon Lichtenstein's "Of Marriage: Relationship and Relations" (Tradition 39:2) addresses the "hashkafic" ...

I recently got the Tur-Shulchan Aruch set "Tzuras HaDaf" published by Shulchan Melachim. I would personally recommend getting the Tur Shulchan Aruch together, which I have found tremendously useful, both for reference and for in-depth study purposes. Additionally, its not that much more expensive than getting just the Shulchan Aruch and certainly much ...

Nishmat Avraham by Rabbi Dr Avraham Avraham is a classic and is available in Hebrew and English (Artscroll). He discusses IVF quite a few times. In Vol 3, p15 he begins by quoting R' Waldenberg (Tzitz Eliezer 15:45) who doesn't approve, and then quotes R' Nebenzahl (Asya 34), R' Ovadia Yosef (Yabia Omer 8 EH 21) and R' Eliashiv who all permit AIH.

Here's Me'Am Lo'ez on Amazon. It was written a long time ago by a Rabbi Culi, but translated into English by the late Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan (whose Torah translation I reference all the time). Kaplan taught himself Ladino to do this translation. There's also The Midrash Says. (Not the "Little" Midrash Says, which is for kids.) Again, you have to know how to ...
