  CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Unitarians
The appointment in 1805 of the Rev. Henry Ware to the Hollis chair of divinity at Harvard College and the nomination within the next two years of four other Liberal candidates to important professorships in the same institution, brought that seat of learning under considerable Unitarian influence.
Its school of divinity was endowed and organized by the denomination in 1817 and remained under its control until 1878, when it became nondenominational.
While the diffusion of Unitarian ideas was comparitively rapid the organization of churches was retarded by the reluctance of many to separate from the Congregationalist communities of which they were members.

There are several possibilities for receiving rabbinic ordination in addition to seminaries maintained by the large Jewish denominations.
These include seminaries maintained by smaller denominational movements, and nondenominational (also called "transdenominational" or "postdenominational") Jewish seminaries.
The Union for Traditional Judaism (UTJ), an offshoot of the right-wing of Conservative Judaism and the left-wing of Orthodoxy, has a Seminary in New Jersey; the Seminary is accepted by all non-Orthodox rabbis as a valid, traditional rabbinical seminary.
