One of its activities was the publication of The Holy Beggars' Gazette, a gathering of Jewish wisdom authored by Reb Shlomo and others. This book brings together the contents of The Holy Beggars' Gazette, and is presented chronologically from its beginnings in 1972 until it ceased publication in 1979.
