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 am beginning Chapter 8 so definitely on schedule, in fact I will be able repeat some chapters if I so desire and be within the time frame. I plan to continue with the online student program when I finish the "Foundation". The classes are thorough, interesting, professional and extremely well thought out. I don't believe you could have done it better - it's perfect! I thank God I found you. Shalom

I'd like to thank FFOZ for their HaYesod course and all their performed research. HaYesod gave me a deeper insight - level of understanding - on how and why gentile believers in Yeshua are connected to the people of Israel and their Land.
In the past I visited many different churches hoping to get more clear explanations on what I had read in the scriptures or the main message of the Gospels, but it often left with more riddled than progressed. After a while I discovered the FFOZ-website and I eventually chose to start with the HaYesod program. Having finished the course I would to describe Hayesod as a critical review on christian and Jewish theology which brings the clarity (foundation) I have been searching for and on which I can further build my faith.

The HaYesod course has greatly changed my perception and understanding of scripture, the people and the land of Israel. The field trips were marvellous and increased my enjoyment. I have studied on my own but have not found any problems in understanding, everything is explained simply and clearly. I have watched each segment of all the lessons numerous times and am sorry to see my time coming to an end. The flow and content of the course is exciting and the field trips to Israel bring you "there." This entire experience has increased my love for the people, Scriptures, and land of Israel. Thank you to all who made this program possible, it is excellent!!!

“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 have learned so much especially about the covenant and Passover etc. I love that it is an eternal covenant . Are there more classes with a video component? I like being able to watch, listen and write as I learn. Thanks so much for your great work.

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!

As a believer who has attended a Messianic Jewish Synagogue, gone through 5 years of Torah Club, a Dispensational Seminary, and now an Army Chaplain stationed in the Middle East, I find this 10 week course extremely helpful. I wished you guys had this in place 8 years ago at the start of my spiritual journey into Messianic Judaism. In addition, I see the evolution and maturity of FFOZ taking root over the recent years and I am thankful that you guys did not go down the road of other Judaizers who are associated with the fringe elements of the movement. May God Bless You and Multiply You.
