abbi Chatam Sofer (real name Moše Schreiber) is today part of the multicultural pantheon of personalities of Bratislava. He belongs to the greatest spiritual authorities of traditional Judaism. During his tenure, the yeshiva of Prešporok was one of the most prominent educational institutions in the Jewish world. After years of being forgotten, it received a postage stamp, a commemorative coin, the alley Sofer´s stairs, and in 2002, the Chatam Sofer Memorial was inaugurated. The Bratislava public, Jewish believers, and tourists worldwide can admire the modern building, which respects the strict religious traditions of Judaism.
