Jewish Lives Scottish Spaces

A new Digital Archive featuring a selection of the Archives Centre’s material, has just been published online. Covering 10 themes, it gives a flavour of the diversity and richness of our collections. It was one of the outputs of the Jewish Lives, Scottish Spaces project.  https://collections.ed.ac.uk/jlss

Jewish Lives, Scottish Spaces was a research project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. It was a joint project between the Universities of Edinburgh and Glasgow that ran from September 2015 until April 2018. The project drew primarily on the collections of the Scottish Jewish Archives Centre (SJAC), the largest and continually growing repository of items relating to Jewish migration to and life in Scotland.

The other outputs were:
