   A collection of songs of Zion meant to be sung by choirs. A note on the title page indicates that the music to go along with these songs will be published separately. The notation "Hoveret 1",( meaning "booklet #1) is also on the title page. This booklet was printed in Warsaw by M. Y. Halter and partner. There is a second title page with the publishers' information in Russian.

The title page has an illustration of a lyre on it, and the word ציון in the center of a Jewish star as part of a decorative design at the top of the page. The last song is in Yiddish, and all of the rest are in Hebrew. Pesach ben Binyamin Noah Kaplan (1870-1943) was the compiler. Pesach Kaplan was the editor of the newspaper “Bialystoker Shtime”. He was also known as a musician and composer. He composed many melodies for songs in Hebrew and Yiddish, and he also published a small songbook with his melodies. Pesach Kaplan particularly excelled in composing tunes for Yiddish operettas in the theaters of Vilna and other cities.
