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 learn about the foundation of your faith.

Generally it is a very informative program, in to detail It explains to me so much: the Bible makes so much more sense now. It is the pearl I was looking for in a huge field for more than 25 years. Because my mother tongue is not English, it would be better if it was English subtitled because I do not understand all the words as they are spoken. I understand English very well, let there be no mistake, and you guys speak very clearly, that is not the issue. Sometimes a word is being used which is not in my vocabulary yet.
I would recommend any believer to follow this program, unfortunately their is a language barrier for people in Europe I think.

This program series is amazing! I have had why’s, when filled in. There was information that I never knew. I had many blank spots in my knowledge/learning base. I have learned so much as well as how to apply in my life! Thank you so much for this amazing, wonderful course!

We are a group of 10 people (4 couples and 2 singles) who are interested in the "foundation" of our Christianity. We each learned a great deal and are continuing to study and seek to find application of what has already been learned. We are in North central Arkansas and are interested in finding like-minded persons in or near us.

"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…"

— Pastor Mark Brocato

I love the HaYesod course. I have taken it twice, once with my congregation and once on my own. I like the way it is organized and builds on itself with each lesson. I have been a Christian for 45 years, but am new to the Messianic movement, so this course gave me a really good foundation. The only exception that I would take, if you will permit me, is the frequent reference to anti-semitism in Christianity. This has never been my experience. I now understand that you are mainly (although unfortunately not always) referring to the early Christian church. I appreciated learning how the great disconnect between Christian and Jew began. Thanks for doing what you do!

Hayesod is a life changing experience. I thought I knew about the bible and YHWH (God) ways but I was wrong... What I love about Hayesod is that everything is based on the bible, the own bible will confront you to the truth, a truth the was hidden in front of your own eyes. Thank you FFOZ, this is an awesome teaching, every human being should take this lessons.

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.
