A Hanukkah parody in the form of a four-page newspaper. None of the writers are found in the standard references indicating they may be fictitious. Written in Yiddish, it contains stories, poems riddles and related literature of Hanukkah. The final page contains an announcement of the Allgemeiner Bibliotek indicating the availability of library books for the general public in Polish, Russian, Zargon (Yiddish), and Hebrew from the writers in the parody. This is followed by a realistic listing of other books by the publisher.
