Number of Words and Letters
I am trying to find out how many words there are in the Torah. Short of counting by hand, can you help?
The Aish Rabbi Replies:
According to my concordance (Avraham Even Shoshan), here are the stats.
|Book||# Parshas||# Chapters||# Verses||# Words||# Letters|
Incidentally, Rabbi Even Shoshan wrote his concordance before the advent of computers! He wrote it by hand, and when there was a pogrom against the Jews, his work was destroyed. So he started from scratch and rewrote it.
