Photo Caption: Article describing how despite coming to this country from Hungary as a young many in 1859, Rabbi Shwarts, a tailor by profession clung to his religious integrity. He never missed coming to shul, even during the Great Blizard of 1888 (Great White Hurricane). He asked that his coffin be constructed from the walls of his Sukkah and that the many Lulavim he had used over the years be buried alongside him.
