Abstract "This full-length history of the Jews of Edinburgh chronicles their immigration from Russia during the 1880s in the wake of Tsarist persecution, and examines their reception by native Scots. The Jewish community in Edinburgh took on greater national significance in part due to the career of "Scotland's Rabbi," Dr. Salis Daiches of the Edinburgh Hebrew Congregation"--Provided by publisher.
