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.

We both enjoyed your course which we have now completed. It is well-presented, in the videos and in the manuals. We have long been familiar with the Sabbath, Holy Days of God, clean foods, etc, as that is part of our Church of God background. Besides these fundamental teachings, other questions will arise for individuals regarding New Covenant applications of walking in the covenant way of life. We see these questions arising for the apostles in the book of Acts, etc. With the coming of the New Covenant it became relevant to discern which of the Torah laws are applicable for believers, just as it was always necessary to discern which laws were applicable for whom prior to the New Covenant. We believe it is this discernment we see at work within the pages of the New Testament, rather than some laws being obligatory for Jewish believers solely on the grounds they are Jewish, and not obligatory for Gentile believers solely on the grounds they are not Jewish. We would also avoid placing any Jewish tradition, however meaningful, into the same category as the Torah. So while we differ in some respects from some of your approaches, we thank you again for the opportunity of doing this course, and wish you well in all your future endeavours.

Hi, we have finished the Ha Yesod course and found it most interesting. We are now going through the Torah Club lessons which will take us a few years. Thank you so much for your research. Blessings and shalom.

“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 think the program is GREAT it brings you back to our Hebrew roots and it is easy to follow I love the trips to Israel and the teaching is very simple but yet full of great information I like the steps that the lesson's are put into HaYesod is a must for anyone who wants to learn about Hebrew roots and to know what the bible is all about it get's a person started on a journey that will change your life. thank you HaYesod teachers.
This study is vital to a solid understanding of the background of our faith. I started out doing it online solo, but later found a group. The group experience certainly enhanced the discussion, but if you have no other option, go it alone! It is a very clear, biblically based, "foundational" study. I have done many studies over the years, but none has brought me to such a deep understanding of the teachings of Jesus as the HaYesod study. I want to lead a group of my own. Everyone serious about their walk with God should take this course.
I loved this newer program. It exceeds in content and interest by more than 100% from the first HaYesod program. I am very interested in facilitating another group of HaYesod in the near future. My prayer is that I can do this in the church. At synagogue on Saturday, someone asked me when I am doing the class again. Good reports from word of mouth are always nice to hear and I am passing that on to you.
