About the Schick surname

  • Rabbi Moshe Shik (1807–1879; Hebrew: מהר"ם שיק) was a Rosh Yeshiva and Posek, and one of the leading Hungarian rabbis of his time. He is more commonly known as the Maharam Shik; Maharam is the acronym for Moreinu Harav Rabbi Moishe, which means "Our Teacher the Rabbi Moshe" in Hebrew. The spelling of his surname varies, including Shick, Schick, and Shieck; the surname is itself an acronym for "Shem Yisrael Kadosh" ("a holy, Jewish name"), a surname chosen by Maharam Shik's grandfather, when the Jews of Austro-Hungary were required to take on surnames

I/our family have received an oral tradition about the name SCHICK, acronym for SHEM, YISROEL, KODESH. Meaning that the name of a Jew (Israel/Israelite) is Holy. OUR FAMILY TRADITION has it that an ancestor died AL KIDDUSH HASHEM, a Martyrs death, and, as a RESULT of this, the surviving family had CHANGED-ADOPTED their new surname-name: henceforth, SH"I"K, etc. (written by a direct descendant). ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
