Start your own HaYesod study group and join us in our efforts to share the vital message of HaYesod about the Jewish foundation of Christianity. We suggest you learn more about the program by reviewing the Program Information and watching the Program Preview.
First Fruits of Zion does not have an "approval" process for leaders—essentially anyone can host a HaYesod Group. We rely on you to determine whether or not this program and its message is something you can honestly stand behind and work within.
We want to build a team of quality leaders who are governed by shared values, common theological perspectives, genuine integrity, and a dream of seeing the whole body of Messiah building on the Jewish foundation of our faith.
HaYesod may not be for everyone. After reviewing this website, you may decide that this program is not the best choice for you. On the other hand, if you identify with this message, prayerfully join us by using HaYesod to teach the nations and making disciples.
Starting a Group
Follow the steps outlined below to get started.
1. Purchase a HaYesod Pack
We have made several HaYesod packs available that you can purchase, depending on the size of the group you intend to host.
You can start with the basic HaYesod Individual pack, or HaYesod Family pack, and later purchase additional Student resources to expand, or you can purchase the HaYesod Small Group pack (suitable for 4 students), or To the Nations pack (suitable for 12 students), and expand from there.
2. Promote your HaYesod Study
We provide several resources for you to promote your HaYesod Study. Included in both the Small Group, and To the Nations packs, we have included a Promotion pack consisting of a sample of flyers, posters, postcards and other material to promote the program and get potential students interested. We provide additional promotional materials free of charge, depending on your need, if you wish to expand your outreach.
All these promotional items are available online for you to order at any time.
3. Prepare Yourself
After you have received your HaYesod pack, carefully review the Program. The HaYesod Leadership Guide is an invaluable tool for you as a group leader to starting, hosting, and facilitating a successful HaYesod study.
