All Faiths Seminary International is an international interspiritual seminary established by Rabbi Joseph H. Gelberman. His motto was “Never instead of, always in addition to”. He believed whatever your faith tradition is, go deeper into it, but in addition open your heart, ears and mind to the wisdom that is in the other faith and religious traditions. He believed God gave some of his wisdom to each religion, so if you want to learn all of God’s wisdom, we must talk to each other, learn from each other. AFSI offers a one year ministerial program leading to ordination. Each student receives a New York State certification as a legal minister with registration at the New York marriage License Bureau. The seminary offers various tracks of study and advanced degree programs in affiliation with Commonwealth Open University.

We are an educational and social good interfaith organization. We envision a world where people have good access to strategies, methods, and ideas that promote social harmony and enable bridge-building across divides. ​To us the term 'interfaith' means the continual improvement of interrelations between people who strongly believe in different worldviews. ​Our primary goal is to support and supplement new and ongoing efforts.
