  1. Yes, the very same. You can enjoy much of his Torah and wit right here on this site. Chaval. You can also see his shiurim on torahanytime.com

  2. Shalom. I live in Los Angeles, and saw the news of the petira of Rabbi Schwartz. Fifty years ago, when I was 10 years old, a red-headed boy with an amazing sense of humor entered our Modern Orthodox day school for a year, and became my friend. He left after a year or two, and IIRC, his parents wanted him to learn in a yeshivah setting. I never saw him again.

    When I saw the news about Rabbi Schwartz’s petira, I began to wonder if this was he. I have read some of his writings today, and they are full of insight and humor. Somehow, I wonder if he was that boy that I befriended long ago, who at the time went by the name David (English pronunciation). Was he by any chance born in 1957/1958?

    Either way, may his family find nechama in the memories that so many are sharing.
