Moderate Zionist who kept the Jewish Chronicle indipendent.
by Geoffrey Paul.
Si tratta del necrologio di David Kessler, un ebreo sionista, nato a Pretoria il 6 giugno 1906, morto il 24 novembre 1999, all’età di 93 anni. Era figlio di Leopold: «Leopold was an early Zionist who had led an expedition to El Arish, in the Sinai peninsula, in 1903 to investigate the possibilities for Jewish settlement there. An associate of Theodor Herzl, the father of the modern Jewish state, and such stalwarts of the movement as Max Nordau and Israel Zangwill, his was a moderate Zionism, which was also to characterise David’s approach to the state of Israel».
