Date:1974 Mar. 26
Description:

Oral history. Interview conducted on March 26, 1974 with Rabbi Julian B. Feibelman in his office at the Temple Siani in New Orleans, Louisiana. Feibelman was born on March 23, 1897 in Jackson, Mississippi. He remained in Jackson for the first thirty years of his life. Feibelman graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from Millsaps College and went straight into the army to fight in World War I. After some reflection, Feibelman decided to become a rabbi and in 1920 he entered Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati, Ohio. Upon graduation, Feibelman went on to hold rabbinates in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and New Orleans, Louisiana. His career was long and productive. In 1929, Feibelman received a Master of Arts degree and then his Ph.D. in 1939. Feibelman was one of the leaders in the ecumenical movement in New Orleans and considers one of the highlights of his career the "Operation Understanding" he helped to conduct in 1964 and 1965 among the Catholic, Protestant and Jewish congregations in the city.
