Is $720 for a semester of language learning a reasonable price in the Boston area?

I'd like to learn modern Hebrew, and the most comprehensive evening course I could find in the greater Boston area was that taught at Hebrew College. The price was a shock to me though. I would benefit from the interactivity and motivation of having a teacher and other students, so I'm not sure a course such as Rosetta Stone or Pimsleur (although cheaper) would work for me. And in my experience with other languages, software will only get you so far in terms of language acquisition.
So, is this a reasonable tuition? I've looked for alternatives and haven't been able to find anything in the area that is equivalent. I have a discount at certain other educational institutions, but they do not offer the language I'm interested in, unfortunately.
