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.

Thanks so much for the HaYesod teaching. I watched it all twice, some of them 3 times, learned so much from these classes. As a Gentile Christian leader, I thought I knew quite a bit, but through these online teachings I'm finding out how ignorant I am! So many misunderstandings were clarified, from what I learned in Bible college and what I was taught in church. Because of the HaYesod teachings, I now have a greater love and appreciation of my own Hebrew spiritual heritage, discovering the roots my faith springs from. (Romans 11:17).

There are three of us who attend Shomair Yisrael in Knoxville although we live 50 miles away. We decided we wanted to take the HaYesod course but without the extra drive. So once a week we met at my home to view it online while our synagogue did the study there. Thank you!

I started the program with a hungry heart, a heart yearning to know the Lord better. I wanted to understand the Land, People and Scriptures of Israel. What I wasn't prepared for was how deeply impacted I was nor how it would change my heart therefore my life. I shared about the course with a girlfriend and went through the material again with her while I start The Sabbath course and soon she will start that course too. When we get together we discuss what we are learning, what the Lord is showing us and yearning for more material like these courses. We are reading some of the books listed in the back of the student books and continue to learn, grow and be transformed by the Lord. Thank you for these courses and hope you are preparing more courses for people like us whose desire to learn, love and bless Israel can continue to understand deep within our hearts what Yeshua desires for us too!

“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

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.

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.

Really appreciate the time and effort you put into this program Loved every minute of the study. Have learned an awful lot of Jewish roots. Am now continuing to teach, Chronicles 6, going into 6th week. The blessings I have received are too numerous to mention, will continue to review course out of my study guide. Also appreciate the fact that we can call in with any questions we might have, and dictionary, both great tools. You are in my prayers for your continued growth in Yeshua. Blessings!
