Published by Schocken in Germany in 1937 – later volumes published in New York and Palestine. This is an amazinf feat, considerinf the Nazi’s were in power in Germany. This is one of the latest editions (if not the latest edition) of a Jewish Bible printed in Germany.Schocken Books (Schocken Verlag) is a publishing company that was established in Berlin with a publishing office in Prague in 1931 by the Schocken Department Store owner Salman Schocken. It published the writings of Martin Buber, Franz Rosenzweig, Franz Kafka and S. Y. Agnon, among others.
