Who We Are


Reverend David E. FeldmanIn accordance with the All Faiths Seminary's tradition of "never
instead of, always in addition to," Rev. Dave remains
committed to his Jewish and Zen Buddhist practices,
while acting as a bridge between other faiths and a
help to those who have no religious background
or specific religious interest but who would like to pursue their own spiritual path.

He studied Torah and Kabbalah with his beloved Rabbi, Rabbi Bennett Hermann, of Temple Emanu-El of Long Beach, as a private student. He studied with his beloved Rebbe, Rabbi Joseph Gelberman, the founder of the All Faiths Seminary International, during 2008-2009, culminating in his ordination in June of 2009. He studied Torah tropes with Cantor (and opera singer) David Katz of Long Beach.

Press of Miss., '04), spiritual films including What Does It All Mean - A Spiritual Documentary, and Long Beach NY Wants You ... Safe – a docu-drama he wrote and directed (produced by good friend, Liz Byrne, and the City of Long Beach), intended to prevent drowning and to promote beach safety in Long Beach, NY.

He is available for weddings, meditation, spiritual counseling, life coaching, and, most important, a kind and listening ear.
