Can anyone tell me where I might find an index to help me to find a topic in Mishna Berura (preferably in English)?

    An index of what? Word usage? Topics? You've only used one sentence. Surely there is more you can say to describe what you seek. – Double AA Jul 1 '16 at 0:06
  • @DoubleAA I was using the term index as it is usually used: "an alphabetical list of persons, places, subjects, etc, mentioned in the text of a printed work, usually at the back, and indicating where in the work they are referred to" (collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english/index). – Yehuda W Jul 1 '16 at 1:30

There is an index called Yad Yisrael


  • Nifla. English is the new Aramean for Jews. – kouty Jul 1 '16 at 6:07
  • @kouty. Not exactly .. yeshivish is, I think. – DanF Jul 1 '16 at 14:34
  • @kouty more like English is the new world language. There are as many Chinese being trained to speak English as there are Americans. – user6591 Jul 1 '16 at 14:45
  • @user6591 as aramean was at time of Gemara. You can see that the aramean was very spread, nothing to do with a mysterious kabalistic jargon. Aftertime Arab was also and geonim and first Rishonim wrote alot in Arabic language. – kouty Jul 1 '16 at 15:42

    @kouty very true. Yiddish and Ladino would have definitely begun from Jews speaking other languages. It's unfortunate that people in hindsight confused Yiddish with lo shinu lishonam – user6591 Jul 1 '16 at 15:46
