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.

This program is very good. The only thing I wish is that FFOZ acknowledged that the [Church] was separated by Constantine and not by the believing gentiles. The Bible says we are grafted in and that makes us one with
Israel. We all should keep His commandments after conversion. Paul said in Yeshua there is neither slave,nor free, male or female, Greek or Jew but we are all one in Christ. That means the Torah is for us all . If it was enforce and applicable to the gentile believers in the Apostles day it also is for us today. We should not encourage disobedience. Otherwise what FFOZ believes will be no better than the churches we now attend who encourage disobedience to Torah.

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 an excellent study and a great blessing! The teachings are clear and concise. The Hayesod program has truly turned my understanding of the faith on its ear and I am so excited to continue to explore the Jewish foundation of the faith!
Thank you so much for this program - I will recommend it to all of my brothers and sisters in the faith!

“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 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 just finished Ha Yesod and loved it. It was a great way to learn and be with God on Sundays. I found it more enjoyable than my seminary work :) The program is easy and fun and the trips to Israel brought back so many memories from my trip last year. I am definitely leaning to join Torah Club as well as leading Ha Yesod. I am trusting in God's guidance and grateful for this program :) Well done.

Hi, thank you for making this course available. I am not new to Hebrew Roots and yet felt drawn to this course about the foundations of our faith and have been handsomely rewarded. Briefly, this course has helped me to and will help me to encounter and reflect God in new ways and I am grateful to you for this. I am now considering Torah Club. May you all be richly blessed. Love in Yeshua.
