I'm following a reference to "Chazon Ish,Yev., par. 83, #6", which I think is his commentary on Yevamot. Can anyone help me find this source online? Many thanks.

  • It's in Chazon Ish on seder Nashim. I don't think you'll find it online you might need someone with access to send you the relevant text. Might be on otzar hachochma but not free.

  • This is the only one I found, but I do not think it's the right one. hebrewbooks.org/14331

Thanks to Shmuel (I had no idea the Chazon Ish was on Hebrewbooks), here are some possibilities.

If par. 83 means simman 83, here is a link, although that's hilchos gitin and not relevant to the reference at hand.

His commentary on Yevamos starts at simman 134, so I'm not sure what's par. 83 in this case.

If it means daf 83, I don't see comments there.

There's also Hilchos Yibum starting at Simman 115.

I'm thinking they meant Simman 117 par. 6, which says what they reference about someone acting like a Jew needing conversion or not. Maybe the Simman number changed over the years?

  • Great find. I accidently bumped into it searching on Google :). I agree with you on the last part, that it must be siman 117, par. 6.
