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 almost finished with my Hayesod foundation study. In the beginning, I was fascinated with the fact that Israel is God’s chosen nation that will be called to be with him in the end. As a Gentile, I do not understand why we would need to be Messianic Jews. As a gentile and a believer, the Christian church is part of the Jewish nation and Israel under the house of David.I have emailed before about my confusion, but I did not receive an answer. Can someone explain this to me? The study is very good and has brought me back to believing again. Thank you.

Thank You for this wonderful HaYesod program. It's truly a new foundation for me. I loved watching the videos with the field trips to Israel. It brings Israel right at your doorstep, you can see all the effort and love of making them. FFOZ is a blessing for the world! I'm going to tell the Salvations Army, Beth Yeshua and friends in the Netherlands about FFOZ.

I'm still watching the tv programs and have taken a subscription on "Messiah" magazine.

I have loved every minute of my HaYesod study! The quality and content of each lesson was so rich and informative that I hated for it to end! The trips to Israel were priceless having just visited there for the first time over a year ago. The teachings from many of the places that I had visited while there enriched my understanding. Each lesson left me with a feeling of wanting more. The lessons on covenants and discipleship were two of my favorite, that challenged me and really made me stop and question what I thought I previously understood. Studying through the HaYesod program has truly been a life changing experience and one that I would recommend to all who are hungry!

“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…”

What an experience!! A group of friends are studying Torah Club 2. So many times I have needed my Hayesod at that study. My group of friends are Messianic, so what an advantage My studying the Hayseod has brought a deeper understanding. And I have gained three new friends. Thank you Boaz, Toby, and Daniel. Shalom.

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.

My spiritual understanding is growing! I completed lesson three. I loved the covenant comparison, specially the part about the renewed covenant. I thank my Lord for adopting/ grafting me into his beloved family. Thank you, Hayesod teachers, for your time and dedication. May the Lord richly bless you! Shalom!
