Is your last name Sofer or Schreiber (Yiddish for “writer,” or “Sofer”)? If so, chances are you’re one of the many descendants ka”h of the famed Chasam Sofer. Even nowadays, hundreds of years after this tzaddik lived, we hear about the Chasam Sofer all the time—his divrei Torah, well-known stories about him, the mesorah he gave over to his children and talmidim. Truly he was a one-of-a-kind person, a rare gadol from whom Klal Yisrael gained enormously.
