    Not only was he a great rav, with multiple responsibilities as cantor, shochet, mo-el , and congregation leader, but it was told to me that he was a great healer. My cousin, Rav Avraham Yakov’s grandson, Herbert Schotz, told me that he had a small jar of white powder, and whenever anyone was sick he would place this on their wounds and their pain, under his hands. That’s how he got people well. What this substance was, I do not know.

    It would be nice if the family could go to Syracuse and obtain his Gemorrahs and maybe this vial of special white powder is in the bottom of one of the boxes of books or seforim that are stored there.

    May he rise soon to meet the Holy Redeemer, bimha-rah viyamenu.

    My father Hilbert Israel Schotz z”l was the very proud grandson and his stories influenced me to become a rabbi.
