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.
