New for 2021. To fund ongoing twice-weekly language classes for adult learners, we are using a tuition-based model for Hebrew classes this 8 week session. Tuition for CBST Members is $36 per course, and non-members $72 per course. (Tuition includes all 16 classes of the selected course. Enter '1' in the ticket field for one registration). If any CBST member needs to set up a payment plan or discuss a tuition adjustment, please email Jesse Katz at jkatz@cbst.org. In the same spirit, we ask that those who are able to contribute above the base tuition amount please consider a donation to support another student, and CBST’s adult learning now and into the future.
