BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH top

Julian Beck Feibelman was born In Jackson, Mississippi on March 23, 1897 to Abraham and Eva (Beck) Feibelman. He spent his childhood in Jackson, attending school there, graduating from Millsaps College in Jackson in 1918 with a Bachelor of Arts degree. Following his graduation, Feibelman enlisted in the Army and served 15 months at Camp Shelby, Mississippi during World War I.

After leaving the Army, Feibelman matriculated at the University of Mississippi Law School but shortly thereafter decided to enter the rabbinate and transferred to Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati in 1920. He was ordained in 1926 and went to Philadelphia to become assistant rabbi at Reform Congregation Keneseth Israel where he remained for ten years. While in Philadelphia Feibelman attended the University of Pennsylvania and earned a Master of Arts degree and a Ph.D.

In September, 1936 Feibelman came to New Orleans to become rabbi at Temple Sinai. He remained there until his retirement in 1967 when he was elected rabbi emeritus.

Feibelman was deeply involved in community affairs in New Orleans, working for better interfaith relations between Christians and Jews and for greater friendship and brotherhood among all persons.

During World War II, Feibelman was Chairman of the Home Service Committee and the Camp and Hospital Committee of the New Orleans Red Cross Chapter and he served as a volunteer Field Director for the Red Cross in New Orleans camps.

In 1947 he was a representative of the First World Conference on Anti-Semitism in Seeligsburg, Switzerland, which was organized by the National Conference of Christians and Jews.

Feibelman served as president of many organizations, including the Louisiana Society for Mental Health, the Louisiana Association for Mental Hygiene, the Family Service Society, the Rotary Club and the Alumni Association of the Hebrew Union College. He served on the executive boards of the Central Conference of American Rabbis, the New Orleans Urban League (of which he was a charter member), the Boy Scouts of America, the Foreign Policy Association, the Veterans Information Center, the Jewish Federation and the Jewish Community Center. In addition, he was a member of the editorial board of the Jewish Publication Society.

Feibelman was a lecturer at Tulane University in the field of World Religion. He was also Religious Director of the Southwestern Division of the National Conference of Christians and Jews.

Feibelman was active in efforts to achieve integration in New Orleans Schools and he was responsible for the first integrated meeting in New Orleans in 1949 when he invited Dr. Ralph Bunche, then Director of the United Nations Trusteeship Division, to speak at Temple Sinai after Bunche had been denied an auditorium in the city.

Feibelman received many awards during his lifetime, including an honorary Doctor of Laws degree from Millsaps College in 1946 and an honorary Doctor of Divinity degree from Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in 1955. He also received the Weiss Award from the National Conference of Christians and Jews in 1967, the Torch of Liberty Award from the Anti-Defamation League in 1974, the Annual Medal for Distinguished Service from St. Mary's Dominican College in 1967 and the Times-Picayune Loving Cup Award in 1968. In addition, he received citations from the Goodwill Industries and the Boy Scouts of America, who awarded him the Silver Beaver Award in 1951.

Feibelman was the author, in 1980, of his memoirs, The Making of a Rabbi. He also was editor of the New Orleans Jewish Ledger from 1940-1944.

On October 20, 1938, Feibelman married Mary Anne Fellman. They had one son, Julian, Jr.

Julian B. Feibelman died on October 10, 1980, in New Orleans at the age of 83.

    Note:     The following list of subjects is a selective index to many of the
    topics and individuals in the JULIAN B. FEIBELMAN PAPERS. It is selective in
    that it only attempts to draw attention to the more significant items in the
    collection. It does not attempt to list every subject or individual nor does
    it try to indicate all places that a listed subject or individual appears in
    the collection. When used in conjunction with the Box and Folder List, the
    Subject Tracings should help the researcher locate topics. References are to
