Yiddish actor. Schwartz was the last major figure in the Yiddish theater of New York. He flourished at a time when there were about 20 Yiddish shows on Second Avenue in New York City, and his Jewish Art Theater was among the last to close. Schwartz became known in almost every corner of the Yiddish-speaking Diaspora. He toured North America, South America, Europe, Israel, and South Africa. His company had a repertoire of 150 plays from Shakespeare, Lope de Vega, Toller, and George Bernard Shaw to Shalom Aleichem. He was known especially for his playing of Reb Malech in Singer's Yoshe Kalb, Luka in Gorki's The Lower Depths, Oswald in Ibsen's Ghosts, Shylock in The Merchant of Venice, and the title role in King Lear. The Jewish Art Theater became an institution in New York, breeding talent for both the Yiddish and English-speaking stage. " (EJ, 2008) Subjects: Songs, Hebrew - United States.
