Not the Moses Sofer you were thinking of.

Here is a pair of unfortunate stories about a man named Moses Sopher.


Moses Sopher gunned down and was gunned down in 1900 himself by a man who had arrested him two years earlier. But this would not be the first life he took. It appears that in 1884 he and his father - also named Moses Sopher - got drunk, quarreled and the elder Sopher wound up stabbed to death.

    Maybe it would have been more on point if the son's name were "Shimon".

  4. My "huh?" was directed at S. 'Ahl A-Kittab's point makes total sense.
