Moyshe Sofer (the Chatam Sofer).  He served as the rabbi of Kloyzenburg, was the author of Hebrew texts, and he was a leader and member of Mizrachi, in whose interest he often traveled through Europe.  In 1922 he settled in Israel.  He published in a highly Germanized Yiddish: Der tsienizmus un zayn gebenershaynungen im likhte der religion (Zionism and its images in light of religion) (Kloyzenburg, 1920), 32 pp.  He died in Jerusalem.
