A Finding Aid to the

Floyd S. Fierman Papers

Manuscript Collection No. 649 

1940-1988. 6.4 Linear ft.


 The Floyd S. Fierman Papers were donated to the American Jewish Archives by Temple Mount Sinai, El Paso, Texas in January 1990. Temple Mount Sinai, by the act of donating the Floyd S. Fierman Papers to the American Jewish Archives, assigned the property rights to the American Jewish Archives. All literary rights to material authored by Floyd S. Fierman are held by the Fierman heirs. All literary rights to material authored by others are retained by the individuals and their heirs. Questions concerning rights should be addressed to the Executive Director of the American Jewish Archives. The papers are available to researchers in the reading room of the Marcus Center of the American Jewish Archives.


 Floyd Fierman was born in 1916 in Cleveland Heights, Ohio. Following his graduation from John Carroll University, he attended Hebrew Union College and  was ordained in 1945. From 1944-1949, he worked with Rabbi Solomon Freehof at Rodef Shalom Temple in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. During his Pennsylvania tenure he took a strong interest in historical Jewish religious education. While a student at Hebrew Union College, Fierman taught Rockdale Temple Sunday School and also at the Jewish Community Center in Cincinnati, Ohio.  This interest in Jewish education served as a basis for his doctoral dissertation which he earned from the University of Pittsburgh in 1949.

 Rabbi Fierman served as the rabbi of Temple Mount Sinai, El Paso, Texas from 1949 until retirement in 1981.  It was a period of growth, both of membership and the construction of a new building.  His activities included the National Conference of Christians and Jews and Jewish education.  He also served as the founder of the El Paso Jewish Historical Society in 1980. Fierman  was rabbi emeritus at Temple Mount Sinai until his death.

 Fierman was also an avid scholar. He focused primarily on the history of Jews in the Southwest with the publication of the books Guts and Ruts: Jewish Pioneers on the Trail in the American Southwest in 1985 and Roots and Boots: From Crypto-Jew in New Spain to Community Leader in the American Southwest in 1987.  Fierman also published several articles on Jewish pioneers.   In the late 1980s, Fierman turned his research focus to Nelson Glueck's service with the OSS during World War II.

 Fierman married the former Edythe Beren. They had two children: Leslie Zinberg and Gordon Fierman. His brother, Morton Fierman was a rabbi in California. Floyd Fierman died on 14 February 1989.

 The Floyd S. Fierman Papers describe the rabbinic activities and writings of Floyd S. Fierman, the rabbi in El Paso, Texas.  His research interests included Jews of the Southwest and the World War II activities of Nelson Glueck. The papers are divided into two (2) series:

SERIES A. RABBINIC ACTIVITIES consists of 12 Hollinger boxes of bound volumes  arranged in a chronological order (1940-1988). Some dates do overlap. A partial index to sermon titles can be found at the end of the finding aid.

SERIES B. RESEARCH FILES AND PUBLICATIONS consists of four Hollinger boxes arranged in a single alphabetical series (1937-1988). Writings vary from published articles (in italics) to manuscript copies and notes relating to research for publications.
