Historical Note: In 1944, at age 19, Dr. Lieber received his bachelor of arts degree magna cum laude from the College of the City of New York, where he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. He received a Bachelor of Hebrew Letters degree from the Jewish Theological Seminary of America that same year. In 1947 Dr. Lieber was awarded a master's degree in philosophy from Colombia University. He received his ordination from JTS a year later, in 1948. In 1951, Dr. Lieber received a Doctor of Hebrew Literature degree from the Jewish Theological Seminary. His dissertation was on Tehilim. The decade Dr. Lieber spent at the Jewish Theological Seminary was an extraordinary time to be at the intellectual center of the Conservative movement, and it made a great impression on him. He studied under the tutelage of some of the foremost Jewish scholars of the time, including Talmudist Saul Lieberman, Jewish Bible scholar H.L. Ginsberg, and philosopher Mordecai Kaplan. Dr. Leiber also pursued postgraduate studies at Columbia University, the University of Washington in Seattle, and UCLA.
