Israel Yitzhak Kalish
In 1829 he moved to Przysucha, where his master tzadik Simcha Bunim of Peshischa was teaching. Eventually he settled in Warka. Together with rabbi Yitzchak Meir Alter from Ger, he coped with Russian ukases (decrees), prohibiting wearing traditional Jewish clothes.
He died in 1848. An ohel (small prayerhouse-like structure built over the grave) was constructed in 1990 in honor of the Rabbi in the Polish town of Warka, where he is buried.
