confuse me with another at-
torney named Steven
Schwartz. We used to get each
other's mail and phone calls
all the time."
With a last name as com-
mon as Schwartz, it is not
hard to find someone else with
an identical name.
Sharon Schwartz is an Eng-
lish teacher at Hillel Day
School and the parent of a for-
mer Hillel student.
Another Sharon Schwartz
also had a son at Hillel.
The two met when their
sons were in first grade. The
boys are now going into 11th
grade.
"Our paths have crossed a
number of times," Mrs.
Schwartz said. "We have close
contact because our children
go to Hillel."
Mrs. Schwartz, the teacher,
was once asked by a student
if she had called his house.
"He was worried I wanted
to talk to his father about his
grades," she said. "He said the
caller who identified herself
as Sharon Schwartz did not
sound like me and he thought
it could have been a prank
call. It was the other Sharon."
One year, the school direc-
tory incorrectly listed their
phone numbers.
"People would call me to ask
if I could substitute teach,"
Mrs. Schwartz, not the
teacher, said. "I told them
thanks, but I didn't think they
would want me to sub."
Both Sharon Schwartzes
agree that while it is ironic
they have the same name, the
other coincidences they share

can be eerie.
Around the time of their.
sons' b'nai mitzvah, the
women, without knowing it,
purchased their dresses at the;
same store. Mrs. Schwartz, .
the teacher, got the wrong.
dress alteration bill.
Their sons now attend dif-
ferent high schools, but they
are in the same AZA chapter.
At one time the women were
going to the same doctor.
Many of these name duos
said they were both patients
of the same physician at one
time or another.
The two Murray Feldmans
have gone to the same dentist
and both see the same aller-
gist. One doctor's file has a
blue sticker and one has a red
sticker.
"We've even had the same
allergy symptoms on the same
day," said TV-2's Murray Feld-
man. "Our wives will be talk-
ing on the phone at night and
discover we both came home
from work with the same
symptoms."
Their wives were even in
the same adult bat mitzvah
class at Temple Israel.
Ron Klein's coincidence sto-
ry is about a vacation in Flori-
da. His daughter called the
hotel to talk to her parents.
She was connected to, that's
right, the other Ron Klein's
room. Neither couple knew
the other was in Florida and
at the same hotel.
"We always laugh at the co-
incidences," Mrs. Schwartz
(not the teacher) said. "It's a
lot of fun to get together and
compare stories." LI
