Shimon Sofer (Hungarian rabbi)

Not to be confused with Rabbi Shimon Sofer, known as the Michtav Sofer. Shimon Sofer was the Rav of the Hungarian city of Eger and the progenitor of the Erlauer Hasidic dynasty, his grandson, Rabbi Yochanan Sofer, was the Erlauer Rebbe in Israel. Sofer was one of 10 children born to Rabbi Samuel Benjamin Sofer, known as the Ksav Sofer; the Ksav Sofer was the son of Rabbi Moses Sofer, known as the Chasam Sofer, the rabbi of Pressburg and the leading rabbinical figure of Orthodox Judaism in the Austrian Empire, as well as one of the greatest Talmudic scholars of his day. Shimon Sofer studied and lived the early part of his life in Kleinwardein, a town boasting a large Jewish community, he was a diligent student, completing the Talmudic tractate of Beitzah six times before his bar mitzvah. In 1870 he married daughter of Rabbi Yitzchak Fried of Kleinwardein; the couple had a daughter. Esther died after two years of marriage. In 1874 Sofer married his cousin, Glikle Birnbaum, the daughter of Rabbi Chaim Shmuel Birnbaum of the town of Dubno in western Ukraine.

Rabbi Birnbaum was the son-in-law of Sofer's great-grandfather. The couple had a son, but divorced soon after his birth. During this period, Sofer lived both in Uman and Kiev, where he became known as a brilliant Torah scholar. Despite his young age, he was offered the position of Chief Rabbi of an offer he turned down. Thereafter, he lived some two years in the Polish city of Krakow, in the company of his uncle named Rabbi Shimon Sofer. In 1875, Sofer returned to Pressburg and married another cousin, Malka Esther Spitzer, the daughter of Rabbi Zalman Spitzer of Vienna. With Malka, he had 13 children. In 1881, Sofer was appointed rabbi of the Hungarian city of Eger. There he founded a large yeshiva, attended by elite Torah scholars from throughout Hungary; this yeshiva became a foundation of the Erlau dynasty, a branch and direct link to the philosophy and teachings of Sofer's grandfather, the Chasam Sofer. Sofer delivered a daily shiur in the yeshiva and provided for his students' physical and spiritual needs.

He became a spokesman for Torah Judaism and fought to protect his community from the proponents of Neolog Judaism, a Hungarian reform movement. His fame spread throughout Hungary and he was offered prestigious rabbinical posts in other cities, but he chose to remain in the small community of Erlau, saying that he wished to raise his children away from a "big city atmosphere"; as Sofer aged, one of his sons, Rabbi Moses Sofer, took on the role of Rav and dayan of the town of Erlau. Rabbi Shimon Sofer was referred to by his congregation with the revered and affectionate title of "Rebbe". In his old age, Sofer lost his eyesight, one of his students would read aloud the Talmud with the commentaries of Rashi and Tosafos to him. Sofer would correct the boy. Sofer led the Jewish community in Erlau for some 64 years. Shortly after the Germans occupied Hungary in May 1944, they placed the Jewish population in ghettos. In June, the Germans deported his entire community -- some 3,000 Jews -- to Auschwitz.

They arrived on 21 Sivan, were gassed a few hours later. Sofer was 94 at the time of his death, his son, Rabbi Moshe Sofer, was murdered at the same time. Sofer authored a book of responsa, Hisorerus Teshuva, Shir Maon on the Torah, he was able to pay for the publication of these works only with the help of his wife, who sold all her jewelry to cover the printing costs. He edited the works of his father and grandfather and prepared them for publication. Sofer's grandson, the late Rabbi Yochanan Sofer, re-founded the Erlau community in Israel in 1953. Rabbi Yochanan printed his grandfather's sefarim at the Institute for Research of the Teachings of the Chasam Sofer, which he established. Rabbi Yochanan presided over the Ohel Shimon-Erlau Yeshiva, named in memory of Rabbi Shimon Sofer. Sofer had 15 children from his three wives: Mrs Gitel Frankel Rabbi Akiva Sofer Mrs Sara Deutch Rabbi Shmuel Chaim Sofer Rabbi Moshe Sofer Rabbi Yaakov Biyamin Sofer Mrs Rivka Pashkus Rabbi Zalman Sofer Serach Pollack Rabbi Avraham Sofer Mrs Chava Leah Weiss Mrs Rachel Rosenblatt Mrs Reiza Klein Rosa Shlomo www.

It targets young people in the 15-25 age bracket, broadcasting a varied schedule of locally produced programming for up to 18 hours per day during term time, is run by members of the local community.

In late 2013, the station reported having over 140 volunteers producing 92 weekly shows; the majority of programming during the day takes a CHR format, playing music from the station's weekly playlists. There are talk-based shows which discuss current affairs. In the evenings, specialist programming covers a wide range of genres including Asian, Electronic, Hip hop and classic pop; the station began as Royal Holloway's Radio Society in 1997 after Ed Harry had sent four delegates to the annual Student Radio Conference in Edinburgh.

Insanity Radio was formed a year taking its name loosely from the fact that Royal Holloway's founder Thomas Holloway opened the Holloway Sanatorium, a hospital for the treatment of the mentally ill, a short distance away. It began broadcasting under Restricted Service Licences in 1998, allowing it to broadcast for 28 consecutive days, twice a year on different frequencies 87.7FM. The station operated from a studio in a spare room in Royal Holloway's historic Founder's Building, with cabling running to a mast on the roof. In 1999 the station was forced to find a new home. Matt Deegan and Richard Clarke started making lists of rooms in the university that they felt were acceptable to base the radio station. All of these ideas were dismissed, except for a seminar room in the Queen's Annexe. After getting the budget cleared by the Students' Union it was constructed into a broadcasting studio, a meeting room and a production studio, retired in 2014. In September 2000, the station was granted a Long-term Restricted Services Licence to broadcast on low-power AM all year round on 1287 kHz.

The AM transmitter on 1287 kHz closed on 1 June 2014 after a 128.7 hour marathon broadcast, timed to the license lapsing. In 2015, Insanity moved to purpose built Media Suite on the top floor of Royal Holloway's Students' Union building, a self-contained complex consisting of three studios and an office. In 2019, the station was awarded a grant from The National Lottery Community Fund to utilise the previously-unused third studio. In November 2008, Insanity Radio — led by Station Manager Joe Friel — applied for a Community Radio Licence; the licence was granted by Ofcom in February 2010. In late 2011, Ofcom allocated the frequency 103.2 MHz to the station, allowing it to broadcast on 103.2 MHz at a maximum power of 25W ERP. The installation and testing of the transmission equipment began in February 2012, the station began broadcasting on FM on 7 March 2012, with the transmitter being switched on by Station Manager David Lamb and Students' Union Vice President Sarah Honeycombe. Two new Production Board positions — Head of Community and Head of Community — were created to reflect the station's new status as a community radio station.

These positions were changed to Head of Community and Head of Community in 2013. The station is licensed to broadcast as a community radio station until March 2022; the license was renewed in November 2016 for a further 5 years, at which the station may apply for another extension. The renewal application was authored by current station managers Charlotte Mason and Alexander Sundgren; the station is run by an elected committee of 17, known as the Production Board. The Production Board positions are Station Manager, Assistant Station Manager, Head of Operations, Head of Programming, Head of Content & Standards, Head of Training, Head of Station Sound, Head of Audio Engineering, Head of Computing, Head of Online Content, Head of Community, Head of Community, Head of Events, Head of Music, Head of News, Head of Marketing, Head of Publicity and Head of Visual Production; the Students' Union's Co-President sits on the board. In addition, the station's operations are overseen by the Advisory Committee which meets quarterly to ensure that the station is meeting its licensing commitments.

The Advisory Committee consists of members from the university, the Students' Union, two alumni, the current Station Manager, the current Assistant Station Manager. As set out in the station's constitution, the positions of Station Manager and Assistant Station Manager are elected annually by students at the university in a campus-wide election, while the rest of the board are elected annually at the station's annual general meeting, open to anybody; the station develops many open source software projects aimed at the radio sector, documents its technical infrastructure online.
