By putting " * " ( shift+8) in any search field and "Enter" you can

On the bottom of the page - field "Search by category". By selecting
any of the categories and simply pressing Enter, you will get all ministries

all ministries and institutions in the specified area.
In the telephone number box, put any area code to see listings in the area.
