    I’ll try to remember to take a picture of the Kever the next time I’m at the cemetery involved with matters of the Chevra Kadisha.

    There were two Bick faimlies from Mezhibizh that imigrated to the US.

    Family 1:
    Rabbi Yischok Bick from Providence was the son of Rabbi Simcha of Mezhibizh.

    His Son Rabbi Shoul Yisocher Bick was a Rav in Brooklyn NY in the Anshie Sefard Cong.

    Rabbi Avrohom Yeshoua Bick son of the above Rabbi Shoul Yisocher was also a Rabbi in Brooklyn.

    Family 2:
    Rabbi Chaim Yechiel Bick of Brooklyn NY (listed in this site) was born to his father with same name after his father has passed away.

    The first Rabbi Chaim Bick was the son of Rabbi Zvi Aryeh Bick from Mezhbizh who was a brother to Rabbi Simcha Bick from Family 1 above.

    Rabbi Moshe Zvi Arye Bick of Borough Park Brooklyn was the son of Rabbi Chaim, and the father of Rav Bick Shlit”a of Borough Park.

    This is my great grandfather. I live in NYC and would be interested in any information anyone has on Rabbi Yitzchok Bick. My grandmother was one of his daughters that married and stayed in NYC.
