The Zionist monthly journal Ost und West (East and West) was published in Berlin in the years 1901-1923. The founder and editor was the author and Zionist activist Davis Trietsch. His deputy was the author and poet Arthur Silbergleit. "East and West" tried to bridge between modern, western Judaism to the traditional, east-European Judaism. The journal's attitude was that Judaism is a culture rooted in the East (both in the Levant and in Eastern Europe). Amongst the writers: Martin Buber, Max Nordau, Ludwig Geiger, Alfred Nossig, Avraham Epstein, Arno Nadel (edited the music supplement) and many others. Photos and b/w reproductions of art works were integrated into the journal. The illustration on the journal's covers was created by Ephraim Moshe Lilien. 16 volumes, 29 cm. Condition varies. Most of the volumes in good condition. Damages to bindings. The volumes have not been examined thoroughly.
