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 recommend this program to everyone. I recommend it to people in passing conversations. This study cleared a lot of confusion about things that I had been taught as a child. It beautifully knits the Hebrew scriptures and what we call the New Testament into unity. Thank you FFOZ!

I am absolutely loving this program. I am about 3/4 of the way through the online lessons and have learned so much - the lesson on the covenants in the Bible was especially eye-opening! I also love soaking in the sights and sounds of Israel as I progress through the program. Thank you for this wealth of knowledge in such an interesting, accessible format!

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.

“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 to all of you for producing this Hayesod program for us. There was much to learn and I didn't dare just go ahead and write in the answers because each lesson was a completely new experience for me, and I would have put in the wrong information. It was lots of fun to actually go with our teachers to Jerusalem and the surrounding areas via the videos, to envision what it must have been like when our objective of that lesson was given. I am saving up to belong to the Torah Club. So grateful! Shalom.

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.

This is an excellent program and I have really enjoyed it, only sorry it has ended. Highly encourage others to take advantage of this excellent source of information. The trips to Israel are great and really add to the dimension of the study. I will continue my studies through the Torah Club and thank you for all the work you do at First Fruits of Zion.
