What Our Students Say About Us

Dear Rabbi Stewart Paris,

      I am writing this gratitude letter to you on the eve of Rosh Hashanah. It says here in Wikipedia that the biblical name for this holiday is Yom Teruah (יוֹם תְּרוּעָה‎) which literally means “day of shouting or blasting”. I was ordained by The New Seminary in 2009, and recipient of a Masters’ in Divinity from All Faiths Seminary International 2021.

   I am hereby desiring to “shout and blast forth “to you, Rabbi Paris, words of gratitude for this past year at AFSI. Forever grateful am I to our Rev Dr. Jon Mundy who led me to Rev. Kathleen Regan who listened to “my story” and encouraged me to enroll in my Masters’ studies at AFSI. Grateful to Rev. Kathleen am I for having given me Dr. Anita Archer as mentor, indeed a teacher of teachers, with whom 

  I had wondrous opportunity to grow so very much in this septuagenarian vintage. From last September’s class when I first heard you, Rabbi Paris, lecture to us on the Jewish High Holidays, I knew that God/Universe had brought me to my Divine Right Place. Your moving charismatic stories of your long time friendship with our founder, Rabbi Joseph Gelberman and your brilliant heart felt knowledge and delivery of Judaic teachings and practice allowed me to know, from day one, last September, that I had been given the gift of a lifetime.


In gratitude.     ~ Rev. Natalia deRezendes

We Are All Divinely Connected
 

     There are few things I enjoy as much as talking about God and all the different ways of experiencing the Divine. In fact, the question I love to ask is, "Tell me  how you experience Divine connection?" It has sparked many amazing, heartfelt conversations, and several have shared quiet tears of joy 

     I have had the pleasure of asking this question of people from many different faiths, and interestingly enough, the answers are often similar. The themes are Love, Peace, Joy, Happiness, Family, and then ... silence as they move into an ephemeral connection that is beyond words.

     This focus on what divinely connects us, what is within us, and yet beyond us is why I love All Faiths Seminary International. We get to explore all the World's Faith traditions in the best possible light. We are all truly divinely connected and divinely blessed, and AFSI makes a point of encouraging every student to deeply explore their personal connection with the Divine - and go deeper.

~ Rev. Dr. Bud James
