Jewish References, Names, and Descriptions
1. "Avotienu" (Our Fathers), by Itzchak Yaacov Yalin, Copyright by Mossad Harav Kook, Jerusalem 1966, Printed in Israel, in Hebrew. In Section "The Olives Mountain", starting on Page 213, under the story: "Zechut Kever Avot" ("In the merit of the grave of fathers . . . "), Rabbi Arieh Levin Ztl relates a story about the burial of Moshe Aharon Schick on the Mount of Olives at great risks. Mentioned in the story by the author are Eliyahu and Pinchas Schick, as well as Moshe Aharon, his wife and three daughters.
2. "Derech Avot" (The Way of Our Fathers), Printed in Jerusalem, Israel, by "Chorev", in the year 5,696 (TafReishTzadikVav); by Eliyahu Schick (Shem Israel Kadosh), published by Rabbi Shmuel Zeev Berkiker. First edition was published by his son Pinchas in Warsaw in 5,644. The names of Shmuel Schick generations are listed from Hanoch Schick to Pinchas Schick.
Below is the first page of the book:
3. "Otzar Harabanim" (A Treasure of the Rabbis), Published in Israel, and contains a listing of all the famous Rabbis over the generations. A brief description is found for Shmuel Schick and his 7 generations to Pinchas Schick.
All 11 Shmuel's Offspring Names in a Compact Matrix
The names as they appear in Jewish literature, and the information given about each person is outlined below:
In order to have a proper matrix for the 10 Shmuel Schick generations, the following names must be present or their alternate:
- Only terms of statistical significance are to be looked up. Therefore, some terms outlined below were combined instead of looking at each one separately.
- COMBINED: The terms Shem, and Israel, even at ELS = 1 are found too many times in the matrix under study. As a result, Shem Israel is grouped as one term.
- Chanoch and Heinach should be in the matrix, or Chanoch followed at the same ELS with the letter Heh. In the simplest form, only Chanoch may be used for comparing various matrices.
- The words Yom and Tov are much too common in the matrix even at ELS =1. In the matrix it can be shown that Yom Tov is statistically significant, and it is next to Lipman. For comparing matrices, Yom Tov is ignored for simplicity.
- Arieh is used again for simplicity, however, in the real matrix, Arieh, Yehuda, and Leib, must be found, or Arieh(Yud)(Lamed).
- Eliyahu can be found numerous times at ELS = 1, in the Bible and in the matrix. To narrow down which Eliyahu is the subject, the first letter of the last name is used, making the term Eliyahu(Shin).
- COMBINED: MosheAharon has to be together, since both Moshe and Aharon, are found numerous times at ELS = 1, in the matrix, and the Bible. Even a solution such as Moshe(Alef) (as the case is for Arieh[Yud][Lamed], or Chanouch[Heh]) is not acceptable, as there are many such terms at ELS =1 in the matrix. As a matter of interest, MosheAharon, is also the main term of the matrix of which the subject matrix is a cluster. Moshe Aharon's grandfather, who was called Moshe Aharon, was called by both names. On the other hand, Hinach is a translation of Chanoch, while it is not clear as to if Arieh Yehuda Leib used all of his three names.
- Since Leah and even Leah(Shin) are too numerous in the text, Leah was not searched for comparison purposes, but was verified to exist at the right location (naturally in many other locations as well).
- MosheAharon must appear at least twice in the matrix, since two people are called Moshe Aharon, and each must be represented and appear at the right chronological sequence.
- Perry Shak fits well in the chronological sequence of the generations. Theoretically, when comparing this matrix to any other for chronological sequence, any of the three sons can be the 11th generation.
- If the full names were searched for comparison purposes, the statistical significance of this matrix will increase, as ALL the names are found in this matrix, i.e., Arieh, Yeuda, Leib, and AryehY(ud)L(amed), are all there. In addition they are all at their minimum ELSs in the matrix in the right location to be in chronological sequence of birth.
A simplified list was used instead of using the list above to search a more compact matrix that will contain all the names. Notice that compound names were limited to the first name only, when the first name was not overly common. Furthermore, only the bold names (1-10 plus 12) were used. Note that, Leah was not searched because it is taken for granted that the term is found everywhere. Term 13 was not searched, as it is not necessarily required to have a specific son from the three below.
It will be shown below that the best matrix that includes all the terms defined above is:
- 1/3 the size of the next best matrix in the entire BIBLE,
- 1/5 the size of the next best matrix in the CHUMASH (Torah),
- Has only one (out of 11) negative R-value terms compare to six (out of 11) for EACH of the two bigger matrices.
With a window (matrix) of 150 x 150 letters, (22,500) from the MosheAharon as the main term, the following matrices were found to match the criteria.
With a window (matrix) of 143 x 143 letters, (20,449) from the MosheAharon as the main term, the following matrices were found to match the criteria (item 11 was assumed to be present in all cases).
With a window (matrix) of 142 x 142 letters, (20,164) from the MosheAharon as the main term, the following matrices were found to match the criteria (item 11 was assumed to be present in all cases).
With a window (matrix) of 124 x 124 letters, (15,376) from the MosheAharon as the main term, the following matrices were found to match the criteria.
With a window (matrix) of 123 x 123 letters, (15,129) from the MosheAharon as the main term, the following matrices were found to match the criteria.
With a window (matrix) of 64 x 64 letters, (4,096) from the MosheAharon as the main term, the following matrix was found to match the criteria.
With a window (matrix) of 63 x 63 letters, (3,600) from the MosheAharon as the main term, there was no matrix to match the criteria.
The best matrix above did not consider the chronological order by birth of the 10 generations. It only looked for any term that will fit into a matrix to satisfy the conditions above. The additional condition that is required now is that:
From the terms Shmuel Shem Israel Kadosh, (in order) the names of the six Rabbis that appear in Jewish literature will appear in ascending chronological order.* From the last Rabbi Pinchas, the sequence continues in a descending chronological order by birth to the current generation of Perry Shak. See Plot A3, for the names of the 11 generations and the last name Schick.
*There is a precedent where in the Bible codes the names of several generations are in chronological order. In a Jewish publication "B'Or Ha'Torah" Professor Daniel Michelson (who was introduced to the codes by his friend and colleague Dr. Eli Rips) writes an article by the name: "Codes in the Torah". In one section he brings out the names of King David's roots in Genesis 38: David son Ishai son of Oved, son of Ruth and Boaz. All these three letter words (in Hebrew) appear at the meaningful ELS = –49. He describes the significance of the number seven and 7 x 7, vs. +49 and 50 and -50. Professor Michelson points out that the information about King David is found where the text tells the story of Yehuda and Tamar, the parents of Peretz. From the book of Ruth, we know that Boaz descended from Perez.

Roots Related Terms
The subject of the matrix is the roots of the Shmuel Schick family, or its offspring. Four of the terms that elaborate on the subject are outlined in the table below in their pure form as "The . . . ". For example, "The Roots" with ELS from –9,999 to +9,999, where 298 such terms were found (see in the table, in the brackets under Translation). Note that in the actual Shmuel Schick matrix "the children" term is really part of the longer term "the 10 children" which in turn is part of the larger term "from the head, the 10 rabbi's children are from A to Z", while the term "the grandchildren" is really "and the grandchildren".
The more complex/profound terms are not used for comparison purposes to keep the process simpler, so one will not have to check each potential matrix to see if each term can lead to a more profound/complex term. The intent of the search is to see if anywhere in the Bible a better collection of terms defining the roots, parents, children, grandparents, etc., can be found.
After analyzing the results, it was clear that with liberal skip allowance for all the terms, no other matrix could be found in a more compact version. A few other matrices with the same terms as that with Shmuel at ELS = 42 [in the subject matrix] could be found, but the size of the matrix had to be increased in each case. Otherwise, all other matrices were missing at least one term.
In an attempt to make the comparison as fair as possible, two VERY significant terms were NOT added to the matrix. The long terms about the 10 rabbi's sons cited above were not entered, as well as the term "the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation". The term "the fathers upon the children"appears seven more times in the Bible with the word "Avot" (fathers) being spelled without a vav. That could have been handled by searching for both versions. When adding the term "the fathers upon the children", it was found that with one exception, at least two terms were now missing.
An interesting note to the search: Why does the Bible spell "Avot al banim" seven times with a vav and one time without? Well, the seven factor always plays an important role. But why does it miss the vav in this section? I am sure that there are several good reasons. I am just wondering if the "missing factor", as a missing letter may be called, is the one missing male from the set of 11 generations.
Another question: Why does dorot shem has a skip of –9? Is it perhaps because at the ninth generation Schick was changed to Shak?
Description of Shmuel's Offspring Character
Plot A6 Description of Shmuel's Offspring Character
What does term three "dorot shem" mean? In Numbers 16:2 "Anshei Shem" is translated as "men of renown". In 1 Chronicles 12:24 and 12:31, it is translated as "famous men". In more recent times, the Baal Shem Tov was the founder of the Chasidic movement.
"Haavot" or forefathers, of Moshe Aharon, were famous men. Shmuel's offspring were in fact leaders of their communities. In Jewish literature, besides describing their qualities, it is mentioned where each served as the chief of the rabbinical court. Again, the word Av(ot) plays a role here. One of Shmuel's famous offspring is the Maharam Schick.
Term four explains that the generations in the matrix are after Shmuel's name.
So what are the qualities that best describe the offspring of Shmuel that were famous rabbis? Terms five through eight describe them very accurately.
A search was conducted in the Bible in a much larger area with ELS from –999 to +999 for a more compact matrix. With the term Shmuel, typically only two or three additional terms were found. Note, that the term five appears again in the matrix in the following line, while the very significant term "Shomrei Mitzvot" (keepers of the commandments/obligations) is also found in the larger matrix.
Description of Shmuel's Offspring Mission/Occupation
Plot A7 Description of Shmuel's Offspring Mission/Occupation
Many of Shmuel's offspring were leaders/heads of their communities, judges, and writers. Not only the seven rabbis that are the direct lineage to Moshe Aharon were famous rabbis. To name just one of the more known rabbis that came out of the Schick dynasty is the Maharam Schick. The book Otzar Harabanim has a long list of members of the Schick dynasty.
The Most Compact "Shall Judge" Matrix for Shmuel in the Bible
With Shmuel as the main term, a search was made in the whole Bible to find a more compact "will judge" matrix. The search was conducted for all terms for a skip from –999 to 999. The settings for the matrix allowed for a maximum size of 45 x 45 letters. Furthermore to minimize wiggle room only the verbs themselves were used as opposed to the whole phrase. The verb "to judge" was used in a future sense to allow for Shmuel's offspring. The existence of the verb in the matrix in singular form was not included.
The table below shows the most compact matrix in the whole Bible. No matrix had all the terms, and even those that had some terms were not as compact.
Description of Shmuel's Offspring Judges
In the book Derech Avot (see Annex 1), the members of the Schick family are listed and described. All the members with one exception are listed as "(alef)(beit)(daled)" and the name of the city. The three letters are acronym for "Av beit din": The head of the rabbinical court. The one exception is Binyamin, since he was murdered as "a young father" during a pogrom.
In terms of today's language they were all head JUDGES. Naturally, they were all rabbis with many other obligations, but for the Jewish community, they were the heads of the Supreme Court.
In total, there are six rabbis listed from Shmuel to Pinchas who were judges. In the table below, you will find one version or another of the verb "to judge" plus explanation six times. There are five distinct terms plus one, which occurs twice. Five is associated with judgment (just like six is with the world, seven with holiness, eight with above nature, nine with truth, etc.)
But where are the terms found? In Plot A8-1 below, you will find the long term "from head, 10 children many from A to Z" intersecting with "Shmuel". The long term is mind boggling to just happen to fall where everything it says is being described in the matrix in detail. Moreover there is geometric beauty to it. It intersects exactly at the midpoint of both terms. It intersects the "man" with the "description". The midpoint of Shmuel is VAV and the midpoint of the long term is a YUD. The vav and the yud can not coincide, but are "touching" one another!
In the Plot A8-2 you will see that the name of the Schick family is associated with the term "rav" or rabbi. There is no doubt as to who the long term is referring "The children of RAV Shmuel Shem Israel Kadosh (Schick) who are listed in order one by one". Plot A8-3 is a preliminary look at the validity of the long term. Here it illustrates that "from the head" means from the head of the family. In this case it is "MosheAharon", the head of his immediate children. There is much more about the "long term" in Annex 9. Plot A8-4 is an expansion of Plot A8-2 and includes the term "only judges" at an incredible R-value of 3.8, and the term "from the laws".
Finally, what is one achievement that they are known for? Judges (heads of the supreme court).
Obviously, you will not find another such collection of terms in the Bible. Even if the long term is to be eliminated, the number of "judge" terms is overwhelming. Even if one is to look only for the verbs in their various versions and spellings, one has to be spellbound by the compactness of such a collection—even if one does not include the family name terms (Shem Israel Kadosh). See Table A8-1 below for the best matrix in the Bible, containing the only "judge" terms. A special plot is not given as Plot A8-2 contains all those terms and more.

The Incredible 19-Letter-Long Term
AND FROM THE HEAD, 10 CHILDREN TO THE RABBI, IN ORDER FROM A TO Z
The above term is extremely significant in this matrix, well above the R-value = 14.9 in the entire Bible. To find such a term in the matrix the odds are many billions to one. The beauty of this term is that it reiterates several other messages that are already in the matrix. It confirms that:
1. All the 11 generations are there with no exception, no omissions of part of a name, etc.
2. The names are in chronological order.
3. Shmuel was a head: a head of the people: "Rashie Haam", the head of the family, etc.
4. There are 10 generations below Shmuel.
There are many such messages in the matrix:
a. Dorot Shem: 10 renowned generations (again at high odds against finding it in the matrix).
b. Ten children of children are those.
c. Fathers, upon children, upon the third generation, upon the fourth generation.
d. . . . to the thousandth generation . . .
5. Dorot Shmi: the generations after my name, etc.
In addition it is the first time that the matrix brings out that Shmuel was a rav, although by the context of the description of Shmuel, one can deduce that he really had to be a rav (rabbi).
In Annex 8 above it can also be seen the powerful intersection of the "long term" with Shmuel, and how they bisect one another. However, there is one more interesting aspect to the phrase "and from the head the children". To emphasize that the head can also mean the head of the family, a plot can show that from the term "MosheAharon" (the 10th generation), the children emerge: "The children come from the head". Furthermore, just as the "long term" performs a perfect match with "Shmuel", it forms a perfect match with "MosheAharon". The long term actually forms a "tee" with "MosheAharon", where "MosheAharon" is the horizontal line with no spacing between the letters, and the long term is the vertical line with no spacing between the letters.
