Gaavad of Pressburg, Rav Simcha Bunim Sofer-Schreiber zt”l


It is with great sadness that reports the passing of the Gaavad of Pressburg, Rav Simcha Bunim Sofer-Schreiber zt”l, rov of the Pressburg Bais Medrash in Givat Shaul, Yerushalayim, who was niftar this morning. He was 84.

The rov was a direct descendant of the Chasam Sofer.

Born in Czechoslovakia on Yud Gimel Teves in 1933, he was a son of Rav Avrohom Shmuel Binyomin Sofer zt”l, author of Shevet Sofer, who was a son of the Daas Sofer.

Rav Simcha Bunim led his kehillah at the Pressburg shul in Givat Shaul, and was well-known for his weekly Friday night drashos that captivated and inspires his listeners.

He leaves behind him a large family of talmidei chachomim who are following in his footsteps. His son, Rav Avrohom Shmuel Binyomin Sofer-Schreiber, Rosh Kollel of Bais Medresh Pressburg, will be stepping in to fill his place at the Pressburg mosdos.

Yehi zichro boruch.
