A project dedicated to charting the lives of Jews who left Scotland to make aliyah has attracted an immediate response.
Scots in Israel, an online collection of historical data, is the brainchild of Michael Diamond, who left Glasgow for Beersheva in 1987.
More than 50 people joined the site in its first week, inundating its message boards with stories of their aliyah experiences, memories of life in Scotland, and attempts to contact old friends.
Mr Diamond is working with the Scottish Jewish Archives, based at Glasgow's Garnethill Synagogue, to record details of olim.
