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.
We are 5 families that are studying "the foundation" and have essentially finished the material. I say essentially because we intend to re-visit some of the lessons. We are impressed with the material and the presentation! We are now in the process af selecting our next course of study. We are considering the "Sabbath" material starting in September.

I'd like to thank FFOZ for their HaYesod course and all their performed research. HaYesod gave me a deeper insight - level of understanding - on how and why gentile believers in Yeshua are connected to the people of Israel and their Land.
In the past I visited many different churches hoping to get more clear explanations on what I had read in the scriptures or the main message of the Gospels, but it often left with more riddled than progressed. After a while I discovered the FFOZ-website and I eventually chose to start with the HaYesod program. Having finished the course I would to describe Hayesod as a critical review on christian and Jewish theology which brings the clarity (foundation) I have been searching for and on which I can further build my faith.
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 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 highly recommend the Hayesod course to everyone. It has helped me understand parts of the Bible that have always been a mystery to me. Reading through Galatians now, I can understand verses that always puzzled me before. I have just finished the Hayesod course and hate to see it end. I am going to go back and finish the extra material I didn't take time to do while doing the course online. I have suggested the course to several people including my Pastor so looking forward to maybe having the Hayesod DVD available to our church for a class there. Thank you for using your time and talents in putting this course together. God's blessings to you.
I just want to say, what a wonderful, good work you and the team have built up. It is full of grace and truth. I have only been able to complete the first 3 studies so far, but it is truly amazing. You have put a great deal of thought and effort into your ministry. Very well done!

I was truly so very blessed learning of my Jewish roots. The format was so easy fun and full of such deep truths. Hayesod had me hooked the first time and I must have finished it in record time. I would love to do more studies like this in the future but unfortunately I cannot afford the Torah club at this time, how I wish I could for it would be a tremendous blessing. All you guys were great and fun, thanks.
