    R’ Mordechai Tzvi Schwartz was born in Szürte/Syrte in former Hungary (now Ukraine), on 9 Adar II 5643, to son of R’ Rafael Schwartz and Rivkah Roth.
    He married Gitl Czitron in 1906 in Hajdudorog. Gitl was granddaughter of the Doroger Rav R’ Shmuel Frenkel, also known as “Shmuel Komader”.

    R’ Mordechai Tzvi’s father R’ Rafael was born on 30 Sivan 5620 in Sighet, to son of R’ Yitzchok Ahron and Blime Schwartz.
    R’ Rafael’s younger brother was the Sarospatak Dayan R’ Leizer Schwartz.

    eretzhagar: I believe the Pataker Dayan was born in 5612, and was approximately 8 years older than his brother Refael, my great-grandfather, born in 5620.

  • 31 eretzhagar // Apr 8, 2017 at 5:52 pm

    blackleibel,

    Maybe I wrong but I know so that the Pataker Dayan was 9 years younger, since he was born in 5629 in Sighet.
