1. Zohar (with and w/o the Tikunei Zohar)

  2. Tikkunei Zohar

Also is there a site/place that lists or otherwise aids in wordcounts for different Jewish books /Seforim ?


  • @kouty We’ve has this kind of question asked for Midrash Rabbah and the Kitzur SA. Why should this be any different?

    It is not different for me. I don't understand how this helps!

  • @kouty My opinion is that they’re all on topic. If you’re going to be voting this one as off-topic, at least vote to close the others as well.

1 Answer 1


I discuss word counts for different classical Jewish works here: Words of Wisdom: Word Counts of Classical Jewish Works (requires registration).

Based on Bar-Ilan Responsa Project CD, the word count of the main body of Zohar is 691,909. Including all the traditionally included works ('Zoharic literature' - such as Midrash HaNane'elam, Ra'aya Mahemna, etc. ) : 1,239,420

For a more detailed breakdown, see the screenshot of Bar-Ilan Responsa Project CD that I cite in my blog here.

(Unfortunately the screenshot that I was sent was cut off, so I can't answer what the word count of Tikunei Zohar is.)
