About Emanuel Streisand

Barbara was born in Brooklyn, the second child of Emmanuel and Diana (Rosen) Streisand, on April 24, 1942. Barbara’s brother, Sheldon, was then seven years old. Her parents had both been born in 1907; her mother was the daughter of a cantor (who also worked in the garment district) and a housewife. At the time of Barbara’s birth, Emanuel Streisand, who held doctoral degrees in English literature and psychology, was the school superintendent at the Elmira Reformatory, where he taught English to prisoners. Her father was described to Barbara as “a very religious man,” who attended New York University and Columbia Teachers College, and once walked back to Brooklyn after a Friday afternoon class to avoid riding on the Sabbath.

Fifteen months after Barbara was born, Streisand’s father took a summer job in the Catskill Mountains, bringing his family with him. Thirty-five year old Emmanuel Streisand died suddenly of respiratory failure resulting from a morphine injection given to halt an epileptic seizure (Emmanuel Streisand’s children found out years later that this—and not a cerebral hemorrhage, as they had long believed—was the actual cause of their father’s death) and the family immediately plunged to an economic level just above poverty. Diana Streisand moved in with her parents in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn and took a job as a bookkeeper to support her family, leaving her little time for her children.1940 United States Federal Census about Emanuel Streisand Name: Emanuel Streisand Age: 31 Estimated Birth Year: abt 1909 Gender: Male Race: White Birthplace: New York Marital Status: Married Relation to Head of House: Head Home in 1940: New York, Kings, New York View Map Street: Ocean Avenue Sheet Number: 5B Number of Household in Order of Visitation: 153 Occupation: Teacher House Owned or Rented: Rented Value of Home or Monthly Rental if Rented: 52 Attended School or College: No Highest Grade Completed: College, 3rd year Hours Worked Week Prior to Census: 35 Class of Worker: Wage or salary worker in Government work Weeks Worked in 1939: 52 Income: 2900 Income Other Sources: No Neighbors: View others on page Household Members: Name Age Emanuel Streisand 31 Diana Streisand 30 Sheldon Streisand 5
