Der Jude (The Jew) was a German monthly magazine, founded by Martin Buber and Salman Schocken, that was published from 1916 to 1928.

Buber was the publisher, the editors were Max Mayer (1886–1967), Max Mayer Präger (1889–1942), Gustav Krojanker (1891–1945), Ernst Simon, and Siegmund Kaznelson.

Der Jude appeared from 1916 to 1928 monthly in the R. Löwit Verlag (Berlin/Vienna). During the last two years it appeared irregularly. The circulation was 3000–5000 copies.

Buber's was the third magazine of this title. Gottfried Selig had published a different magazine from 1768 to 1772, and Gabriel Riesser edited a magazine of the same name from 1832. A fourth magazine of this name was published weekly in New York from 1895 in German.

Martin Buber planned already in 1903-1904 to publish a magazine titled Der Jude as "Revue der jüdischen Moderne" (Review of Modern Judaism), together with Chaim Weizmann, Berthold Feiwel, E. M. Lilien, and Davis Trietsch, as a project of the fledgling publishing house Jüdischer Verlag.[1][2] A prospectus, composed by Buber, was printed and distributed, but for financial reasons the magazine was not realized.[1][3]
