Meet Zerach Seidman
Zerach Seidman HaCohen, (Life Coach) is the Founder and Director of the KOTU כֺּהטוּ Centre, Jerusalem.
I decided to begin offering a Life Coaching service because other life coaches, psychologists, and other therapists have been coming to me for professional advice. I've actually been helping people for over 30 years in their personal lives and with their businesses. Since I made aliyah and moved to Israel in 2011, I've been coaching a lot of people who are going through some very difficult times and having lots of success. So now I finally took the step forward into doing it professionally. I have decades of personal experience helping others, that's why I'm good at what I do.
A little more of my professional and personal background. I've had over 3500 people come through my door here at my home, The KOTU Centre since 2011. Mostly for Learning, Shabbat Meals and Accommodations. Many of whom have asked for advice and coaching to help them get through daily life.
Besides my extensive life experience, I have a background and professional training with The Landmark Education Forum in transformative learning and understanding. I was first introduced to this course back in the mid 1980's and completed the entire curriculum in the early 1990's. Since then I've used my training, life experience to build a number of successful companies. I've also had some Divine Insights which go far beyond standard abilities and experience. You can read more about that in detail on my Melech HaOlam page.
I've been told that I am extremely empathetic to other peoples struggle and story. There are a lot of commingled ideas that people have, which create layers of confusion and darkness, sort of like a light bulb collecting dust over the years which has diminished its ability to shed light into the world. My ultimate goal is to wipe away those layers and allow you the freedom to be who you are and get back your new life.
In 1999, I began going to Rebbetzin Jungreis and her Hineni classes on the Upper East Side in Manhattan every week. Eventually I became a Ba’al Teshuva, which means someone who has returned to Judaism. At the same time Rebbetzin Jungreis hired me to help produce and facilitate their events and marketing for the Hineni organization. They got more than they knew because my background in this field was quite extensive. Having been President & CEO of Barry Dean Productions, Ltd, Sunshine Talent Reps Inc and QB Square Ltd. my previous professional career was as an events producer planning large-scale meetings, conferences and events for some of the biggest companies in the world. In the early 1990's AT&T hired me to produce their company events nationwide. These events brought together thousands of employees to participate in a customized interactive team-building conferences. They were designed to inspire, motivate and educate a diverse range of people on a massive scale. You can't image the amount of details that go into planning an event of this magnitude which took us nine months to plan.
After years of attending Rebbetzin Jungreis's inspiring Torah classes and receiving her unwavering guidance, I was referred to a Yeshivah called Torah Mitzion in Merrick, Long Island. I quickly became the Yeshivah Director and began learning full-time. After 2 years of learning 8 hours a day, 6 days a week, it was time to move on, as the sound of the shofar was calling me to Israel.
I'd like to share with you some other highlights of my life. In 1993, I had the privilege and was invited to meet with the Olympic Committee in Atlanta to discuss the vision I had to produce the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the 1996 Olympics. That was a real thrill meeting with the Olympic Committee. Ultimately my vision of "Peace" was incorporated into the ceremonies. You can watch them both on YouTube. I also produced a live show entitled “Superstars of the USA”, which ran 7 days a week, and an average of 42 performances per week for over six months at an amusement park called Phantasialand in West Germany. What an experience! I produced many other live shows that included Jerry Seinfeld and John Stamos. Not in the same show. I flew John Stamos for the first time in his life from California to New York to appear in "Soaps Alive". I MC'd and hosted Rock & Roll revival concerts appearing with stars like The Drifters, Jay Black and The Americans, The Shirelles, The Coasters, Danny & The Juniors, Bobby Lewis and many more.
At one point I took over the management company called "Sunshine Talent", which actually represented me as a young teenager in which I appeared in the movie "The Chosen" a film based on the bestselling book written by Chaim Potok, directed by Jeremy Kagan. One of our success stories is Kevin Connolly who we represented in hundreds of TV commercials and many films who later became one of the stars of HBO's "Entourage" TV series. While I had all this going I built up another company and designed, manufactured and brought to market a unique stationery product called QB Square. Our product sold worldwide and in thousands of retail stores. Marshalls had it in over 500 stores. My designs were inspirational.
So in 2011, I made aliyah to Israel and after all this I brought with me a Divine message to the Jewish People and to The Land of Israel to help with the devastating drought. That was my Melech HaOlam project, which was and still is a very successful ongoing entity.
The above is just a little taste of some of my accomplishments while overcoming many obstacles. Now I am available to help either individuals, families, groups or businesses to utilize my skills, knowledge and know-how to help you overcome life challenges. There is a Jewish expression "hashgacha pratis" which means "Divine Providence". Which basically means that nothing happens by accident. So if you are reading this, then you must know someone that can benefit from my coaching. I came up with a phrase, "We Get You Back To Living Your New Life!"™. Many of us want our old life back, but in reality, we really want a new life back. So lets try and get there together. Let me know if I can help. Thanks for listening.
