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 is an eye opening study; deepening my understanding of many areas. I also feel like I better know Jesus the man. I highly recommend this for any Christian looking to understand more.

I am learning a lot and I have been on quite a journey since I asked God to teach me as only He could teach and I wanted to know His ancient ways. I felt that I needed to get to know who Jesus (newly learned that His name is Yeshua) was back then, in order to get to know Him now. Between El Shaddai Ministries and yourselves, I feel like God is dotting all of the I's, crossing all of the T's, and connecting all of the dots. Things that I am reading in the Torah, are actually making me cry; things I probably would have never given a second thought to. I have a copy of the Tanach, and I am actually reading every word, including all of the commentary at the bottom! Thanks for teaching this class! I really hope to go to Jerusalem some day. Thanks for all you do!

I finished this programme just before Christmas. I must say, I enjoyed every minute and every page of the course. I learned so much about the Jewish roots of what I always assumed were Christian Scriptures. I can't wait for the new lessons to come out later this month. Thank you for all the hard work that has gone into the HaYesod course. I'm sure it will help many, many people to draw closer to their Jewish Master.

“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 enjoyed doing the lessons, even though I already knew many of the things that were included in it, either from other resources from FFOZ or from other sources. I intend to do the extra material somewhere in the near future as I have been quite busy preparing sermons and translations of needed background materials for a series of sermons in one the churches for which I am a regular preacher. Wherever possible I also use the things I have learned through your program and resources. I really can recommend your materials to other people interested in these subjects!

I have just completed lesson 1 because my husband saw my book ordered one for himself and now we are doing it together, then he got so busy, I had the study itch, and completed lesson 1, which I will now have to sit through with him again, but what an amazing lesson....what a foundation...after being a Believer for 30 yrs God Began to stir me....I would ask...how come He told them what to eat, how to dress, how to worship, how come He didn't tell us...only to learn it's one book, it's not the, "old obsolete testament" ...it's His beautiful amazing, glorious, exaulted perfect sweet word! May God be praised forever and ever....Thank you team! Thank you!

I've just completed the course and I am so filled with true Shalom! For the first time in my life I feel truly connected and have a firm foundation. Before this course I had so many unanswered questions, and felt very frustrated in my spiritual walk; but now I really have a better understanding of Yeshua and the Hebrew roots of the faith. My newfound excitement as a Torah observant believer is contagious, as I witness to my prayer group and others about HaYesod.
