    I am the great granddaughter of Rabbi Schwartz. I would like to be contacted by any family members or others who have information about him. I know he was the Rabbi of an Orthodox synagogue in Port Chester which is no longer operating. He had 3 wives. I donated his book to Yivo a few years ago. His book was published by his son, Sam Schwartz. Merrill Schneiderman
