   Novellae to tractate Hulin by R. Simhah Bunim Sofer (1842–1906). He was the son and successor of R. Abraham Wolf Sofer, continued to maintain the large yeshiva, 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 Mizrahi 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).
