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.
Once I received the workbook, it only took me about a week and a half to complete the course. I did a different lesson a day. After completing one I could not wait to start the other. A lot of the information I knew from other Torah studies through the years but how the course was organized puts everything in perspective. The progressive lessons consistently build on each other and the videos of places and events in the study makes the lessons come alive.
I highly recommend this course to anyone wanting a better understanding of the Hebraic roots of Chrisitianity. Our Savior Yeshus (Jesus) was and is a Jew, the Bible was written by Jews and the only way to truly understand the scriptures is by reading it with the customs and culture of those who penned them to the scrolls/letters. The foundation has already been laid, it is incumbent of us to build on the foundation as part of the members of His body (Temple). This course will provide that beginning. May Adonai Bless and Keep You and grant you peace.

Beloved friends, HaYesod has exceeded my expectations. I watched each segment of the ten lessons numerous times and am sorry to see my time expiring. The flow and content of the course is exciting and the field trips to Israel bring you "there." This joyful experience has increased my love for the people, Scriptures, and land of Israel. I look forward to the time when I will host a small group. I recommend the varied resources available from FFOZ to explore the biblical foundation of our faith. Thank you for your perseverance and zeal for the truth.
Teaching on the Sermon on the Mount in lesson 4 is refreshing and I look forward to incorporating certain aspects of it into my sermon Loving God 12 days from now in the Sandbox of the Middle East....many believers ask me how do I love God in a practical manner. I am excited that I have concrete answers to provide for my troops..Yeah Jesus!!!!!
"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…"

Thank you all so much for an excellent course, it was lovely to see the trips to the Land, which lighten the intensity of the lessons and gave me a yearning to return to Israel. I had started Torah Club but felt a nudge that I needed to do this as well. It has been wonderful, exciting, painful, unsettling and life changing as the Lord reveals the truth in His Word. I have been shocked at how much theology I have assimilated over the years and am now seeing things with a fresh pair of glasses. Parables which I never understood are now making sense when viewed in the context and culture of first century Judaism.
This is an excellent program and I have really enjoyed it, only sorry it has ended. Highly encourage others to take advantage of this excellent source of information. The trips to Israel are great and really add to the dimension of the study. I will continue my studies through the Torah Club and thank you for all the work you do at First Fruits of Zion.
I found the HaYesod program to be well produced, clear in its explainations and carefully based on scriptural truth. The teaching staff is very helpful with answers to direct beginning students into full understanding of what the scriptures say about the connections between grace and obedience in the life of believers. HaYesod is a very enlightening educational series. As a result, I have ordered a set of companion materials sent to my son with whom I have been sharing the teaching. Thank you HaYesod producers for this wonderful spiritual tool set.
