Patron: A Life of Salman Schocken, 1877-1959
Anthony David (au)
The name Schocken -- now primarily assoc. with the prestigious pub. house -- was once emblazoned over a vast commercial empire; across Europe, it stood for quality consumer goods and uplifting culture made available for all. Here is the fascinating story of Salman Schocken, Jewish philanthropic titan and founder of a large depít. store chain. Once he became a millionaire, Schocken harnessed his fortune to a vision: to disseminate culture to the masses through pub. houses and newspapers, and to create a secular Jewish tradition by supporting modern thinkers such as Martin Buber and Gershom Scholem. This is the life of a self-made man who, with courage and tenacity, helped fashion a peopleís national and cultural renaissance.
