Explanation of Calendar and Tuition

The emphasis in this program is a year-long experience of developing as Jewish learners in a strong community context. The tuition is set to reflect the year experience of classes, course materials, open houses, shabbatonim (when possible) and end-of semester celebrations. We recognize that some students have other commitments such that they cannot participate for the whole year, so there are two semester options (fall and spring). All students are welcome to join shabbatonim and other outside of class activities, regardless of which semester they attend.

The number of classes in these semesters fluctuates each year, sometimes significantly, due especially to the high holidays. We have placed the beginning of the spring semester after winter break, following the longest break between classes, which is the best time for new students to jump in. To make sure students enrolled for only one of the two semesters get equal benefit, students who have chosen to enroll only for the fall semester are encouraged to stay through the first six classes of the spring semester at no additional cost.
