Multi-faith/Interfaith/Nondenominational Minister

This, I think, is fairly unique:

...were married Saturday. The Rev. Leslie Harry Cohen, an interfaith minister, officiated at a nondenominational ceremony at the Plaza in New York.

A Cohen, who is a minister, an interfaith minister, conducting an nondenominational ceremony.

Why couldn't it be an interdenominational ceremony?

So, inquisitive, I searched about.

His site is here.

Did you know that he has two degrees from the seminary, (1) Minister of Spiritual Counseling (MSC) and (2) Minister of Divine Wisdom (MDW). And that he is also a practicing Psychotherapist (Cpt) and can incorporate spiritual counseling if so desired?

And if you asked which Seminary that was, I think this provides, sort of, the answer:

He's a Multi Faith minister who studied at the New Seminary, Reverend Leslie was ordained at the Cathedral of "St. John the Divine" in New York City.

So, is he Jewish? Left the faith, er, Jewish faith? Still in?

What gives?

And this:

Reverend Leslie has performed weddings in many religions, including Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Hindu, Muslim and combinations of each. Because Reverend Leslie acknowledges and honors all religions, faiths, practices and spirituality, the content of your wedding can be whatever you want it to be.

From strongly religious to strictly civil and anything in between
Ceremonies for interfaith couples
Spiritual ceremonies
Couples with no particular religious affiliation
Couples who choose to refrain from expressing religious beliefs.

Kind of hodge-podge mixup.

Well, anything goes.

This shift from religious dogmatism towards interfaith dialog and tolerance is very refreshing.

What does being ordained at St. John's have to do with being Jewish?

That which was started off with basketball shoes was later endorsed in many other Hogan uomo as well like sneakers, casual footwear, exclusive wears, women's wear, men's wear, children's wear.

You should be certainly kidding if you're asking this question.

Each of their Christian Louboutin Boots or boots are typically the type that gals die for, simply to be able to get their feet into these Christian Louboutin Sandals and put them on for the most special of occasions.
