Teacher Mentorship

Rosenbaum Teaching Fellows in Transformative Kabbalah

The Transformative Kabbalah mentorship program introduces a replicable and scalable initiative for engaging a wide spectrum of adult learners in spiritual and personal growth through a Jewish lens.

The international cohort of Rosenbaum Fellows in Transformative Kabbalah is made possible through a generous gift from longtime KE student Jane E Rosenbaum in honor of her late husband, Stanton Rosenbaum.

The mentorship is guided by KE Founder and Spiritual Director Dr. David Sanders. KE Rosenbaum Fellows meet weekly as they are mentored in content, pedagogy and meditative practice.

“The curriculum we have developed,” explains Dr. Sanders, “constantly evolves through input from students and teachers. Each new teacher will add their unique perspective and enrich the study of Transformative Kabbalah.”

 Dr. David Sanders, the Founder & Spiritual Director of Kabbalah Experience will be your teacher throughout the teacher training and will be available for continued supervision following the completion of your certification.
