This chapter continues the discussion of Buber's collaborators for an anthology: Shmuel Yosef Agnon, Mordekhai Ben-Yehezkel, and Samuel Abba Horodezky. In 1916, Agnon co-edited with Aharon Eliasberg a small volume of folktales including Hasidic legends, entitled Das Buch von den polnischen Juden. The collection of contributions by various authors from Poland and Galicia was meant to provide a portrait of one of the most creative and organic communities in the Diaspora and “to understand Polish Jewry from within its own culture.” Ben-Yehezkel was among the vanguard of Hebrew essayists who sought to familiarize the mainly Russian-Jewish readers of Ha-Shiloah with the phenomenon of Hasidism and to induce a new interest in Jewish spirituality. Appreciated by Buber and Berdyczewski for his knowledge in the field, Horodezky played an important role in Buber's production of anthologies of Hasidic oral traditions and within the Zionist anthology discourse.
