A Finding Aid to the

Abraham L. Feinberg Papers

Manuscript Collection No. 588

1901-1990. 19 Linear ft.


The Abraham L. Feinberg Papers were donated to the American Jewish Archives by Mrs. Patricia C. Feinberg of Reno, Nevada. The materials were received by the Archives in two shipments in March and July, 1990. Property rights have been assigned to the American Jewish Archives. All literary rights to materials authored by Rabbi Feinberg are held by his heirs. Literary rights to materials authored by others are held by the individual author or his/her heirs. Questions concerning rights should be addressed to the Director of the American Jewish Archives.

The Abraham L. Feinberg Papers are open to all users and the original manuscript materials are available in the reading room of the American Jewish Archives.


Abraham L. Feinberg was born on September 14, 1899, the seventh of ten children of Lithuanian immigrants, Nathan (a rabbi) and Sarah (Abramson) Feinberg. Abraham was born and raised in Bellaire, Ohio, a coal-mining town across the Ohio River from Wheeling, West Virginia.

After graduating from Bellaire High School in 1916, Abraham studied at the University of Cincinnati in Cincinnati, Ohio, and in 1920 earned a Bachelor of Arts degree. In 1924 he was ordained rabbi at Hebrew Union College in the same city.

Rabbi Feinberg served a congregation in Niagara Falls, New York, then in late 1925, returned to Wheeling to accept the pulpit of Eoff Street Temple (predecessor of Woodsdale Temple). He served in Wheeling until January of 1927, when he moved to Temple Israel, the second largest reform congregation in New York City.

After three years of sevice at Temple Israel, on February 28, 1930, Feinberg quit the rabbinate. In his resignation sermon he explained that he had become "disillusioned with the role [he] was expected to play--more a promoter and social director of a complex organization than a pastor of human souls." The resignation was publicized in newspapers around the world and, despite Feinberg's emphasis that he was only quitting organized religion not his personal faith, his announcement precipitated a nation-wide debate.

After leaving the rabbinate, Feinberg studied opera in France and wrote his autobiography (later withdrawn from publication "because of its latent sensationalism"). In 1932 he began a new and highly successful career on radio as the romantic tenor "Anthony Frome". For three years "Anthony Frome, Poet Prince of the Airwaves" performed five nights a week on radio and made personal appearances in New York theaters. But in 1935 Anthony Frome bade his fan club farewell and Rabbi Feinberg returned to the rabbinate. Feinberg gave three reasons for leaving his lucrative radio career: his mother's death-bed wish, the imminent birth of his son, and Hitler's rise to power.

Feinberg returned to his rabbinical career at Mt. Neboh Temple, a small Manhattan congregation. After three years at Mt. Neboh, in 1938, Feinberg moved to Denver, Colorado's Temple Emanuel. In 1942 he applied for a chaplaincy in the United States Armed Forces, but was rejected for physical reasons. Then in late 1943, he accepted the pulpit at Canada's leading congregation, Holy Blossom Temple in Toronto, Ontario. There he remained in the active rabbinate for 18 years, and was named one of Canada's "Seven Greatest Preachers," according to a national poll. In 1961 Feinberg retired from the active rabbinate at Holy Blossom Temple. By 1964 he had written his first book, Storm the Gates of Jericho.

Throughout most of his career Feinberg's sermons reflected his support of progressive causes. In Toronto he led a succession of reform causes in behalf of social justice, speaking out against racism, teaching of religion in public schools, economic injustice, and nuclear arms.

Feinberg protested the Vietnam War as immoral, precipitating threats against his life, heckling at speaking engagements and publications of a libelous pamphlet, "The Red Rabbi." In January 1967 Feinberg and three other well-known clergymen journeyed to Hanoi to try to promote peace. After returning he toured the U.S. and Canada on a speaking campaign against the war and wrote his second book, Hanoi Diary, an account of his trip to Vietnam.

While visiting John Lennon and Yoko Ono at their bed-in for peace in Montreal in 1967, Feinberg suggested a slight change in the lyrics of the song "Give Peace a Chance" and sang the song with them. Lennon urged the rabbi to make a record, resulting in Feinberg's phonograph album, "I Was So Much Older Then," recorded in Toronto in 1969. Feinberg and Lennon cooperated on several pro-peace projects in 1969.

After the death of his wife, Ruth, in 1971 Feinberg moved to California for a new start. For four years he served as Rabbi-in-Residence at Glide Memorial United Methodist Church in San Francisco. In 1972 he performed on his weekly radio program "Grey Lib" in Berkeley, emphasizing rights for senior citizens.

In 1976 Feinberg moved to Reno, Nevada to be close to his son, Dr. Jonathan Feinberg. He became active in senior citizen activities, served a local synagogue, and began another radio show. The new show was called "Grey Lib Plus" and ran from the Fall of 1976 to January, 1978. In 1981 his third book, Sex and the Pulpit, was published.

On November 4, 1930 Abraham Feinberg married Ruth E. Katsh in New York City. She died of cancer on February 14, 1971 in Toronto. Abraham and Ruth had two children, Jonathan Frome Feinberg and Sarah Jane Feinberg Growe. In 1983, Abraham married Patricia C.Blanchard in Reno, Nevada.

Abraham L. Feinberg died of cancer on October 5, 1986 in Reno, Nevada.
