This is a JNF (Jewish National Fund) label, one of many, many designs over the years. Hopefully, someone can add details about this one.

This is a KKL/JNF stamp issued in Poland in 1916 probably given out for a charity donation.
The picture is Rabbi Isaac Elchanan. There were 6 stamps in the series which all had similar pictures of other Rabbis.
There was a booklet pane of 6 stamps in se tenant panes [2x3]The portraits are are of 6 Rabbis who were influential in the Zionist cause.
The stamps are perf 11 1/2 and size 22x30
They are described in Kaplove Stamp Catalogue of Jewish National Fund stamps published in 1973 and long out of print
