Testimonies from Students and Leaders

Read what HaYesod students, group, and community leaders have been saying about HaYesod. We hope their testimonies will be an encouragement for you to join and connect to the roots of your faith.

My wife and I attended HaYesod through Or HaOlam in Overland Park, Ks. Fearing unpredictable winter weather here we also opted to use the online version as a supp. source. It worked out very well as we did actually have one live class cancelled due to snow. We merely watched the lesson online that week and were in fact ahead of our peers that did not have the online lesson. More importantly though was that we supplemented our live instructions with the online as we were having some difficulty understanding everything the first time through. We always heard the material 2-3 times each week using the two methods so needless to say we are very thankful for having taken the online course. It's a very complete course about a somewhat difficult to understand subject but we have done well after completing the course. Thank you very much for your efforts.

Thank You for this wonderful HaYesod program. It's truly a new foundation for me. I loved watching the videos with the field trips to Israel. It brings Israel right at your doorstep, you can see all the effort and love of making them. FFOZ is a blessing for the world! I'm going to tell the Salvations Army, Beth Yeshua and friends in the Netherlands about FFOZ.

I'm still watching the tv programs and have taken a subscription on "Messiah" magazine.

I just completed the HaYesod online program and I am beyond pleased. The content, quality and presentation were all excellent. I am amazed at your ability to take these issues in hand, return them to their proper, original context, deliver the truth in a grace-filled spirit of unity and offer them in small, well-defined, easily understood portions. This course gets my highest recommendation and I will be ordering a set for a class that I teach. Shalom!

“I see HaYesod as having a long-term affect in a congregation … It helps establish the right foundation for new believers, and establishes an attitude of respect for the Scriptures that can be built upon…”

Thank you so much for your Hayesod program. It is very well put together. I loved the trips to Israel. Thank you for making this available online. I've been wanting to work through your program for 4 years. It was well worth the wait!

Thank you all so much for an excellent course, it was lovely to see the trips to the Land, which lighten the intensity of the lessons and gave me a yearning to return to Israel. I had started Torah Club but felt a nudge that I needed to do this as well. It has been wonderful, exciting, painful, unsettling and life changing as the Lord reveals the truth in His Word. I have been shocked at how much theology I have assimilated over the years and am now seeing things with a fresh pair of glasses. Parables which I never understood are now making sense when viewed in the context and culture of first century Judaism.

This has been a wonderful experience for me. I think it is the best study I have ever done in my life. I love it. I am going through a life changing experience in the Word of God. I am learning so much now. It is excellent teaching and I love the videos and the trips to Israel. Please pray for me and my family that we will continue in the direction that YHVH wants us to go. Thank you for all of your wonderful teachings and help us keep growing, I just finished the HaYesod program and it was wonderful. You all have a wonderful ministry. Thanks so much.
