Rabbi David Baylinson was born in Philadephia, Pennsylvania in 1929. He was ordained as a rabbi in 1957 having obtained his degree from Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati, Ohio. His family was non-practicing Jews who observed the Passover seder and High Holidays, but little else. He was a student rabbi at Temple Beth El in Anniston, Alabama, which was his first experience with the South where segregation was still in force. While in Anniston he observed a Knights of the Ku Klux Klan meeting. Also in Anniston he came into contact with Holocaust survivors. After being ordained he served at Temple Beth El in Detroit and then Morristown, New Jersey. His experiences with the civil rights movement began duries in studies in Cincinnati when he participated in picketing a restaurant and amusement park that were segregated. Rabbi Baylinson then accepted the rabbinate at the Brighton & Hove Hebrew Congregation in Brighton, England where he stayed for three years. It turned out to be an enlightening experience in the differences in Reform Judaism as well as an interesting cultural experience. When it came time to return to the United States, Rabbi Baylinson refused to consider congregations in the south, however, a friend asked him to just interview with the congregation in Montgomery, Alabama, he found to his chagrin that of the five congregations he had looked at he liked Montgomery the best. He arrived in Montgomery in June 1965, just weeks after the Selma marches, to replace Rabbi Blachschleger, who had died in January of 1965. He hadn't wanted to have to deal with segregation but found that when he got there that he had an opportunity to work against it from the inside and promote integration, especially in the schools.
