Description
   Certifiying the marriage of the 28 year old Ignaz Frohlich with the 23 year old Regine Frankl.

R. Simhah Bunem Sofer (Schreiber, 18421906), son and successor of R. Abraham Wolf, 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 (193856); and Sha'arei Simhah, on the Pentateuch (1923).
