R. Yaakov Yitzchak of Peshischa (Yid Hakadosh): Rabbi Yaakov Yitzchak of Peshischa, 1766-1813, known in the chassidic world by the title "The Holy Jew" (Yid Hakadosh), was the leading disciple of the "Seer of Lublin," but subsequently split off to form the famous Peshischa movement of Chassidut. Rabbi Simcha Bunim of Peshischa and Rabbi Menachem Mendel of Kotsk were among his many disciples who became great Rebbes in their own right.
