We've decided to open the Chabura to the public, so that students may register on a course by course basis. We hope thereby to allow for the continuation of these classes.
Anyone who was interested in any of the courses but was unable to commit to the full schedule of the Chabura, can attend individual courses of their choice. There will be three eight-week sessions from now until Pesach.

Payment and Registration:
Each course costs 240 NIS for each 8 week session. Payments can be made in one, two, or three installments. Registration must be accompanied by a 100 NIS payment and commitment to a payment plan for the ballance. In order that we be fair to our staff of teachers, sudents must register by September 21st (just two weeks from now) for Session 1 courses. We need eight students to register per course. Some very partial work-study scholarships may be available, based on need.
Those who register for all five courses (the full Women's Chabura Program) will be able to attend all other Community Learning Program Classses at YSS, free of charge. (Note that this works out to approximately $160 per month.)
B'ezrat Hashem, by, we hope to be able to let you know which classes (hopefully all) will have met the registration needs. Should there be any need for refunds, we will do so.
If you know anyone else who might be interested in these courses, please let them know as soon as possible. We look forward to learning with you.
