Unusually harshly worded letter to Mr. Farbstein of the Jewish Agency. Concerns his terrible pain from the telegram he received from Hadera. “Is their any hope for Israel if such spiteful heretics are stuffed with Keren Kayemet funds? ...Such Chutzpah can only come from a culture of poisonous snakes and vipers. ..This is a destruction of both the body and the soul... as in the days of Antiochus, be strong, it is a time to work in the name of God. Hoping for salvation and relief from both our inner and outside enemies.”
