Diana da Costa asked about Rabbi R. Farber and Congregation Sinai, nowtoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Sinai Temple, in Los Angeles in 1913.
Sinai Temple, originally Congregation Sinai, was the first Conservative
congregation formed in Los Angeles, founded in 1906. There is a Wikipedia article
with a brief history. Diana asked about a 1913 marriage for her grandparents
performed by Rabbi Farber. The Los Angeles Public Library has digitized Los Angeles
County directories and made them available for free on their website; the list of
available years is at http://rescarta.lapl.org/ResCarta-Web/jsp/RcWebBrowse.jsp.
The 1913 directory shows Rabbi Farber as the rabbi of Congregation
Sinai, then located at 1148 South Alvarado, a location confirmed in the
Wikipedia article on Sinai Temple. The congregation still exists today
and is, I believe, the largest Conservative congregation in Los Angeles.
