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 a group of 10 people (4 couples and 2 singles) who are interested in the "foundation" of our Christianity. We each learned a great deal and are continuing to study and seek to find application of what has already been learned. We are in North central Arkansas and are interested in finding like-minded persons in or near us.

I have enjoyed the course. I am on my 2nd time through, and I learn more and take more notes hearing it again. I have gained much from hearing about these things from a Messianic Jewish perspective.

We just finished lesson five. We are enjoying them thoroughly, and are working through all of the extra options at the end of each lesson. Some of the reading there is very good too! We are taking our time, as we don't want to miss anything you have put out there for us! Thank you for your hard work.

“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 have just finished lesson four. I must say I am impressed with these lessons. Its' always hard to try and preserve the Biblical text accurately. My only concern was the Noah covenant not covered in the first lesson. However, you have fulfilled the Torah and I am honored to hear what you've had to say. Shalom!

Our Wed. night group just finished Lesson 10. Our Shabbat School will be finishing Lesson 9 this morning. In both groups we chose to do half a lesson each week, which has worked very well! Much less information overload and more time for discussion! I used the online option, projecting to the big screen in our Sunday church sanctuary. This group is eager to study the feasts in the fall.....I believe we will use Sam Nadler's material. We used the HaYesod DVD's for the Shabbat School group. Our Sabbath congregation will also be studying the feasts next using Sam Nadler. Thank you FFOZ for making it easy to present HaYesod!

Thank you soo much for the HayYesod program. It is truly a life changing study. The best class I have ever taken. The instructors are well versed, and the teachings are easy and enjoyable to follow. I loved the trips to Israel. Having never been there, in each clip it was like I was taken on a journey there and sitting with each Instructor. The lessons made me fall in love even more with my Jewish roots. The Covenant and the Discipleship lessons stick out the most in my mind and should be taught in every church. Truly a lifechanging experience in the Word of YHVH. Continue the amazing work you are doing and please please give us more studies. I am so sad for this study to end.
