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.

Our Wed. night group just finished Lesson 10. Our Shabbat School will be finishing Lesson 9 this morning. In both groups we chose to do half a lesson each week, which has worked very well! Much less information overload and more time for discussion! I used the online option, projecting to the big screen in our Sunday church sanctuary. This group is eager to study the feasts in the fall.....I believe we will use Sam Nadler's material. We used the HaYesod DVD's for the Shabbat School group. Our Sabbath congregation will also be studying the feasts next using Sam Nadler. Thank you FFOZ for making it easy to present HaYesod!

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 enjoyed the program for the most part. I did not agree however with seeming division of the house of Judah and the rest of the tribes. We are all one in Messiah. No Jew no gentile. All the MIXED multitude who came out of Egypt had one law for one people. Circumcision was for all. Not just the Jews. Abraham, Isaac and Jacob were not Jews. There were also twelve tribes. Judah being only one of them. There are twelve gates leading into the kingdom not one. I love my brother Judah but I love the rest of them too.You probably will not publish this but I pray it opens the eyes of all of us to love one another. We have all gone astray. Let us all reunite and walk into the kingdom together.

“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…”

What a blessing! Thank you for being obedient to God in doing this great work! In my search for the truth since I was a young girl (now 62) I had many questions that this study has answered and my spirit receives this truth with great peace. My story is lengthy so I can't share at this time but I will share this: My journey since 2009 has taken me to Israel twice, once to tour and once to live in Jerusalem for 2 months as a volunteer. I have visited Messianic congregations and observed holidays, feasts and shabbat in both countrires. The last 2 years I have taken a Hebrew Roots of our Christian Faith class but still struggled with my "Gentileness". Hayesod is needed by every Gentile believer

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!

I was truly so very blessed learning of my Jewish roots. The format was so easy fun and full of such deep truths. Hayesod had me hooked the first time and I must have finished it in record time. I would love to do more studies like this in the future but unfortunately I cannot afford the Torah club at this time, how I wish I could for it would be a tremendous blessing. All you guys were great and fun, thanks.
