Early Life

Dianne Feinstein was born Dianne Emiel Goldman in San Francisco to Leon Goldman, a surgeon, and his wife Betty, a former model. Feinstein’s paternal grandparents were Jewish immigrants from Poland while her maternal grandparents, the Rosenburgs, were a Jewish family from Saint Petersburg, Russia. Although her maternal grandparents were of German-Jewish ancestry, they practiced the Russian Orthodox Christian faith, as was required for Jews in Saint Petersburg. As a result, Christianity was passed down to Feinstein’s mother, who insisted on Feinstein’s transfer from a Jewish day school to a prestigious local Catholic school. That said, Feinstein lists her religion as Judaism. She graduated from Convent of the Sacred Heart High School in 1951. She went to Stanford, where she graduated in 1955 with a Bachelor of Arts in history.


Early political career

Dianne Feinstein was a fellow at the Coro Foundation in San Francisco from 1955 to 1956. She went on to work in the local government in San Francisco. From 1960 to 1966, Feinstein was appointed by Governor Pat Brown to serve on the California Women’s Parole Board. From 1970 to 1978, Feinstein served on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. She was elected president of the board in 1978. 

In 1971 and 1975, Feinstein unsuccessfully ran for mayor of San Francisco. In the 1970s, she became a target of the New World Liberation Front terrorist group when they left a bomb on a windowsill at her home. The bomb failed to detonate because the temperature dropped below freezing that night. The group later decided to shoot out the windows of Feinstein’s beach house.

Mayor of San Francisco

In 1978, San Francisco Mayor and Supervisor Harvey Milk were assassinated by former Board of Supervisors member Dan White. As a result, Dianne Feinstein became acting Mayor of San Francisco as she was the president of the board of supervisors. The board of supervisors then voted in favor of appointing Feinstein as Mayor. She was inaugurated on December 4, 1978. 

One of Feinstein’s first challenges as mayor was San Francisco’s cable car system, which had been shut down for emergency repairs. With federal help, Dianne Feinstein was instrumental in securing funding of about $60 million needed for repairing the bulk of the cable car system. Feinstein also oversaw policies to increase the number of high-rise buildings in San Francisco.  

In 1982, Feinstein angered San Francisco’s large gay community by vetoing domestic partner legislation. In 1984, Feinstein proposed banning handguns in San Francisco, and the White Panther Party tried to remove her from office. However, she won the recall election and finished her second term as Mayor of San Francisco in 1988.

In 1990, Feinstein unsuccessfully ran for governor of California. Although she won the Democratic Party’s nomination, she lost the general election to Republican Senator Pete Wilson.

Republican Senator Pete Wilson resigned from the Senate to assume the governorship. As a result, a special election was held to fill Wilson’s seat. Dianne won the election and took office in November 1992. She became California’s senior senator and America’s first female Jewish senator.
