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.
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.
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.
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.
“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
What a blessing the Hayesod course has been, absolutely life changing. Since completing the course I have begun my long journey into Messianic Jewish life with purpose and peace, knowing this is where G-d wants me to be. The supportive resources help settle the questions plaguing a person once they learn the scriptures from a Jewish perspective. Please continue making these quality materials available. With truth and true peace, Shalom.
My spiritual understanding is growing! I completed lesson three. I loved the covenant comparison, specially the part about the renewed covenant. I thank my Lord for adopting/ grafting me into his beloved family. Thank you, Hayesod teachers, for your time and dedication. May the Lord richly bless you! Shalom!
The HaYesod program was reallly nice. The student workbook as well as the internet videos consist of a high quality with respect to content, education and layout. All subjects are worked out and explained in a very clear way. For a few years ago I got involved in Messianic-Judaism, so the content was not completely new to me. But a starter with some biblical background should be able to understand (easily) the content. Please continue with this wonderfull work. This course was not only a knowledge source for me, but also a great blessing. Shalom.
