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.

“As someone who was deeply intrigued with the study of Transformative Kabbalah and spiritual development, I could not think of a more appropriate way to honor Stanton’s legacy than The Rosenbaum Teaching Fellows,” said Jane E. Rosenbaum, the underwriter of the Rosenbaum Fellowship. “I’m thrilled to see what this year’s international cohort will bring to the study of Kabbalah.”

The first 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.

Curriculum:

The curriculum is facilitated virtually by KE Founder and Spiritual Director Dr. David Sanders. Over the next ten months, the international KE Rosenbaum Fellows will continue to meet weekly as they are mentored in content and pedagogy. The anticipated completion date for teaching certification is July 2022. Following certification, each of the eight participants will be prepared to launch Transformative Kabbalah classes in their home communities. 

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

The success of the KE Rosenbaum Fellowship will provide even more communities with a safe, inclusive, and welcoming space to engage individuals who might not typically participate in formal Jewish institutions.

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 anticipated completion date for the teaching certification of our first cohort is July 2022. Following certification, each of the fellows will be prepared to launch in-person and virtual Transformative Kabbalah classes in their home communities.


“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.”
