Matersdorf and Pressburg - were among the most important Jewish communities in Austria / Germany until the holocaust and are renowned of being the communities of the Chatam Sofer who became the Rabbi of Matersdorf in 1797.
Moses Sofer- (Moshe Schreiber1762 – 1839 ), also known by his main work Chasam Sofer, (trans. Seal of the Scribe and acronym for Chidushei Toras Moshe Sofer).
Was one of the leading Orthodox rabbis of European Jewry in the first half of the nineteenth century.
He was a teacher to thousands and a powerful opponent to the Reform movement, which was then making inroads into many Jewish communities in Austria-Hungary and beyond.
As Rav of the city of Pressburg (present-day Bratislava), he maintained a strong Orthodox Jewish perspective through communal life, first-class education,
and uncompromising opposition to Reform and radical change.
The Chasam Sofer established a yeshiva in Pressburg which became the most influential yeshiva in Central Europe, producing hundreds of future leaders of Hungarian Jewry.
This yeshiva continued to function until World War II; afterwards, it was relocated to Jerusalem under the leadership of the Chasam Sofer's great-grandson, Rabbi Akiva Sofer (the Daas Sofer).
The Chasam Sofer is an oft-quoted authority in Orthodox Jewish scholarship.
Many of his responsa are required reading for semicha (rabbinic ordination) candidates.
His Torah chiddushim (original Torah insights) sparked a new style in rabbinic commentary, and some editions of the Talmud contain his emendations and additions
