May 25, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Resentment felt in Jewish circles over the visit Col. Kisch paid to Rabbi Sonnenfeld, leader of the intransigeant orthodoxy, found expression at the meeting yesterday of the Vaad Leumi.

Dr. Ben-Zion Mosessohn questioned the Colonel, who is acting as the political representative in Palestine of the World Zionist Organization and of the Jewish Agency, about his visit, particularly as the Zionist emisary was accompanied by Prof. Israel deHaan, an avowed opponent of the Zionist Organization. The Colonel replied that his visit was unofficial and prompted by his personal desire to acquaint himself with all parts of the Jewish population.
