Reuben R. Rinder papers, 1907-1966.

The collection consists of correspondence; cantorial materials; musical arrangements, compositions and programs; biographical materials; certificates and honors; some of Rinder's writings and speeches; items from Rinder's tenure at Temple Emanu-El; and photographs. The correspondence consists of general correspondence as well as correspondence on particular topics (such as the commissioning of Chagall for a window at Emanu-El and Rinder's liturgical research trip to Israel) and correspondence with prominent individuals. Among the correspondents in the collection are the following: Ansel Adams; Abraham W. Binder; Henry Cowell; Monroe Deutsch; Mischa Elman; Enrique Jorda; Louis Lurie; Dorothy Warenskjold; and Rabbis Stephen Wise, Rudolph Coffee, David de Sola Pool, Ernest Bloch, Darius Milhaud, Marc Lavry, Paul Ben-Haim, and Frederick Jacobi (the last five of these are composers commissioned by Rinder to write music for Emanu-El). The collection also includes correspondence on child prodigies (including Yehudi Menuhin; Isaac Stern; and Miriam Solovieff) whom Rinder encouraged and for whom he found sponsors. Other notable items in the collection include: copies of Rinder's histories of the Board of Rabbis of Northern California and Congregation Emanu-El, together with minutes from Emanu-El (1957) discussing mixed marriages; two conversion certificates; correspondence from Bronislaw Huberman relating to the founding (1936) of the Palestine Orchestra which was composed of refugees escaping Nazi Germany, for which Rinder was the first to collect funds.
