Our beloved founder, Rabbi Joseph H. Gelberman, established All Faiths Seminary International following his retirement from The New Seminary in 1998. The Reverend Jon Mundy also retired from The New Seminary, which he had co-founded with Rabbi Gelberman, in 1981.
I am a devoted student of Rabbi Gelberman and together with my dear friend, Reverend Mundy, am deeply committed to continuing the teachings of “Never Instead of, Always in Addition to.”
All Faiths Seminary International will continue to evolve and grow as we create programs of learning and sharing to serve the diverse needs of people throughout the world who wish to live and teach an interfaith life.
In the tradition of the great teachers who came before us, we are dedicated to loving peace, loving people, and bringing them closer to the light and joy of God.
The Seminary at present offers many programs:
- Comparative Interfaith Minister Program
- Comparative Interfaith Minister w/ACIM Program
- Comparative w/Judaic Studies Concentration (double major)
- Comparative w/Spiritual Counseling Concentration – The “Pause” Model (double major)

I invite you to explore our website. If you are ready to proceed, let’s study together.
Together, as Modern Interfaith Ministers, we can bring these interfaith ideals to our work places and communities, and make a difference in the world around us.
With God’s help, we shall succeed.
