According to Haim Liberman (Ohel Rachel, Vol. II, pp. 314-319), this periodical is extraordinarily scarce. The articles range from an obituary for the Chief Dayan of Vilna, R. Bezalel HaCohen, biographies of Maimonides and Moses Mendelsohn, parodies, poetry, literary fiction, Krilov’s fables, description of Lebanon, news about the black Jews of Africa, a report on Jewish life in Bucharest, etc. Also contains the editor’s reply to a correspondent from Sadigura stating that he cannot print his article as the attack on Chassidim is too vehement (p. 24).
