Biographical Sketch

Abraham J. FeldmanAbraham Jehiel Feldman, Reform rabbi, author, and civic leader, was born on June 28, 1893 in Kiev, Ukraine. In 1906 he came to the United States with his parents, Jehiel and Elka Rubin Feldman and settled on the Lower East Side of Manhattan in New York City.

Feldman was educated in the New York City schools before attending Columbia University, where he received a BHL in 1913, the University of Cincinnati where he received an A.B. in 1917, and the Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati, where he was ordained as a rabbi in 1918.

After graduation Rabbi Feldman served as associate rabbi to Stephen S. Wise at the Free Synagogue in New York City (1918-1919); as rabbi at Congregation Children of Israel in Athens, Georgia (1919-1920); as an associate, then acting, rabbi at Congregation Keneseth Israel in Philadelphia (1920-1925); and as rabbi at Congregation Beth Israel in West Hartford, Connecticut (1925-1968). In 1968 he was elected Rabbi Emeritus of Congregation Beth Israel.

A nationally known Jewish leader, Feldman served as president of the Central Conference of American Rabbis (1947-1949) as well as the Synagogue Council of America (1955-1957). He was a past president of the Jewish Ministers of Philadelphia, the Federation of Jewish School Teachers of Pennsylvania, the Jewish Teacher's Association of New England Liberal Schools, and the Alumni Association of the Hebrew Union College (1945-1947). He served as vice president of the World Union for Progressive Judaism (1947-1949). He was on the board of directors of the National Farm School (Doylestown, Pennsylvania), United Jewish Charities, and Mt. Sinai Hospital (Hartford). He was an active member of the Board of Managers of the Department of Synagogue and School Extension of the Union of American Hebrew Congregations, and a member of the governing board of the American Jewish Committee, and the Military Chaplains Association.

His leadership in community affairs is demonstrated through his involvement in the Connecticut Birth Control League, Hartford Music Foundation, the Connecticut Advisory Committee of the United States Commission on Civil Rights, the University of Hartford (of which he was a founder and regent), Hartford Rotary Club, various offices within the Masonic movement in the United States and Israel, and the American Jewish Historical Society.

Rabbi Feldman was the author of numerous publications during his lifetime. His writing career included being associate editor of the English-Yiddish Encyclopedia Dictionary (1910-1912), editor of the Connecticut Jewish Ledger which he founded in 1929, and editor of an English translation of Zvi Hirsch Masliansky's sermons. He was author of numerous other works including Words in Season (1920), Undying Fire (1921), Intermarriage (1922), Religion in Action (1923), God's Fools (1924), The Jews (1927), Lights and Shadows (1928), Kiddush Hashem (1929), What is Faith? (1930), Judaism and Unitarianism (1930), Faith of a Liberal Jew (1931), Hills to Climb (1931), The American Jew (1937), The Adventure of Judaism (1937), Contributions of Judaism to Modern Society (1988), A Companion to the Bible (1939), The Rabbi and His Early Ministry (1941), The Mourners' Service (1941), Remember the Days of Old (1943), Why I am a Zionist (1945), In Time of Need (1946), A Modern Synagogue (1946), 100 Benedictions (1948), Confirmation (1949), Reform Judaism: A Guide for Reform Jews (1953), and American Reform Rabbi (1965). He was also a contributor to a number of encyclopedias.

Feldman received honorary degrees from Hebrew Union College (D.D., 1944), Trinity College (STD, 1953), Hillyer College (LL.D., 1953), Hart College of Music (D.Hum., 1953), the University of Hartford, and Parsons College. In 1918 he married Helen Bloch. They had three children, Daniel, Joan Helen (Mecklenburger), and Ella (Norwood). Abraham Feldman died on July 21, 1977 after a brief illness. He was 84 years of age.
