Can anyone tell me what is documented for a Jewish Messiah or the general belief?

Anyone know what is written in the Torah about a messiah?

Also is there any good text of the arguement on why Jesus is not the Jewish Messiah?

Here is a link to Wikipedia that is quite in depth about the Jewish Messiah.

Some excerpts that may be of interest:

The anointed King is destined to stand up and restore the Davidic Kingdom to its antiquity, to the first sovereignty. He will build the *Temple in Jerusalem and gather the strayed ones of Israel together. All laws will return in his days as they were before: +Sacrificial offerings are offered and the Sabbatical years and Jubilees are kept, according to all its precepts that are mentioned in the Torah. Whoever does not believe in him, or whoever does not wait for his coming, not only does he defy the other prophets, but also the Torah and Moses our teacher. For the Torah testifies about him, thus: "And the Lord Your God will return your returned ones and will show you mercy and will return and gather you... If your strayed one shall be at the edge of Heaven... And He shall bring you" etc.(Deuteronomy 30:3-5)."

* The Temple refers to the Temple of Solomon, which is currently occupied by the Dome of the Rock. There are a couple of other sites that are believed to be the true home of the Temple but the site at the Islamic Dome is the most widely held belief.

+The sacrificial offerings are integral to the rebuilding of the Temple and are very specific in that the ashes of the last red heifer sacrificed at the Temple be found to annoint the sacrifice that is reqiusite for when the Temple is rebuilt.

Freemasons have played a role in the search to unearth these ashes, Sir Charles Warren (Vice Grand Master of English Freemasonry and the Commissioner of Police during the Jack the Ripper Crimes in Victorian England) enacted rituals in 1867 connected to the future rebuilding of the Temple. He is credited with having rediscovered the "Hasmonean Tunnel". In 1996 Israeli's ritually opened Warren's tunnel (accompanied by the requisite bloodshed).

On Jesus:

Maimonides next writes why Jews believe that Jesus was wrong to create Christianity and why they believe that Muhammad was wrong to create Islam; he laments the pains that Jews felt as a result of these new faiths that attempted to supplant Judaism. However, Maimonides then goes on to say that both faiths help God redeem the world.
