“The Soul of the East.” by Dr. Marcus Ehrenpreis, Grand Rabbi of Sweden, has been issued in English translation from the Swedish, by the Viking Press, New York.

The work is a travel book describing a journey in the Levant, Egypt, Palestine and the Orient.

Dr. Ehrenpreis, who was formerly Grand Rabbi of Bulgaria, is a Rabbinical scholar of renown and well versed in Arabic. He made the trip in 1925.

“We ought to learn to understand the East better,” says Dr. Ehrenpreis in his book. “A more intimate contact with the essential values of the Orient may lead us to find our own essential values once more to find our selves again.”
