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.

I enjoyed doing the lessons, even though I already knew many of the things that were included in it, either from other resources from FFOZ or from other sources. I intend to do the extra material somewhere in the near future as I have been quite busy preparing sermons and translations of needed background materials for a series of sermons in one the churches for which I am a regular preacher. Wherever possible I also use the things I have learned through your program and resources. I really can recommend your materials to other people interested in these subjects!

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!

This is the absolute best program that a Believer can use to start a foundation to the proper understanding of the Bible. It does not matter how long you have been a Christian or what denomination you belong to. I find it amazing that a small ministry such as FFOZ could produce such a hiqh quality resource. I had been a satisfied, Torah Club member for over a year and wondered if I could benefit from HaYesod. I was NOT disappointed. If you want to know the Bible like you have never known it before, and you are willing to put in the time to study, you need to join yourself to HaYesod. If you don't want to put in the time, do you really want to learn?

“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…”

I've just completed the course and I am so filled with true Shalom! For the first time in my life I feel truly connected and have a firm foundation. Before this course I had so many unanswered questions, and felt very frustrated in my spiritual walk; but now I really have a better understanding of Yeshua and the Hebrew roots of the faith. My newfound excitement as a Torah observant believer is contagious, as I witness to my prayer group and others about HaYesod.

I loved this newer program. It exceeds in content and interest by more than 100% from the first HaYesod program. I am very interested in facilitating another group of HaYesod in the near future. My prayer is that I can do this in the church. At synagogue on Saturday, someone asked me when I am doing the class again. Good reports from word of mouth are always nice to hear and I am passing that on to you.

I just want to say, what a wonderful, good work you and the team have built up. It is full of grace and truth. I have only been able to complete the first 3 studies so far, but it is truly amazing. You have put a great deal of thought and effort into your ministry. Very well done!
