Google Scholar (overlaps with YUFind content, but has unique items)

Google Scholar is particularly helpful when there are variant spellings for words, such as
         kabbalah halitza

Google Scholar search will give you the most common spelling which you can then use in a different database/search engine, such as YUFind.

 halitza ritual

TIP I:  Set your Google Scholar preferences
   to  enable  full-text linking to  YU-subscribed journals.

TIP II: If your English transliteration of a Hebrew  term doesn’t yield results, instead use English  keywords that describe the concept.

 Eg.: Instead of  kabbala,  symbols, use Jewish mysticism,  symbols
