Detail Description

Responsa by R. Simhah Bunim Sofer (1842–1906), was the son and successor of R. Avraham Shmuel Binyamin, (the Kesav Sofer) himself, the son and successor of the Chasam Sofer. All were joint rabbi and rosh yeshiva of Pressburg. The Shevet Sofer also continued to organize Orthodoxy, and to accentuate the differences between it and other sectors of Hungarian Jewry. For this purpose, he strengthened relations with hasidic rabbis in Hungary. He expressed his opposition to the Mizrachi conference which took place in Pressburg in 1904. Most of the Orthodox rabbis of Hungary were students of the Shevet Sofer. His publications are: Shevet Sofer, responsa (1909) and novellae on talmudic tractates (1938–56); and Sha'arei Simhah, on the Pentateuch (1923).
