The first Yiddish literary artistic marionette theatre, founded by Moshe Broderzon, Henekh Kon, Itzhak Broyner and Y. M. Nayman in Lodz, Poland.

The productions had begun in January 1922 and were occurred only several times in several cities of Poland.

The program consisted of satires of societal-literary themes.
