Description
   Seeking funds for an imporant cause.

R. Simhah Bunim Sofer (1842–1906), son and successor of R. Abraham Wolf Sofer, continued to maintain the large yeshivah, 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. His publications are: Shevet Sofer, responsa (1909) and novellae on talmudic tractates (1938–56); and Sha'arei Simhah, on the Pentateuch (1923).
