Support Our High Holy Day Appeal
The High Holy Days season — with its symbolic themes of self-reflection, transformation, and hope — offers a wonderful opportunity for you to make a meaningful gift that will enable Stephen Wise Free Synagogue to grow and thrive in the coming year.
Gifts to the High Holy Day appeal help bridge the gap between membership dues and tuition and operating costs. Thanks to your contributions, Stephen Wise Free Synagogue never refuses membership to anyone who wants to be a part of our community, whatever their financial means.
Portals: A Synagogue of Learning — at Home
Do you want to be part of a synagogue community and give your child a Jewish education? With Portals, an experienced teacher from our Religious School comes to your home for weekly sessions with your child; families participate in the array of children’s services and celebrations at Stephen Wise throughout the year. Designed for children in kindergarten through seventh grade across Manhattan, Portals is ideal for students who would benefit from one-on-one instruction.
Seeds of Wonder: A Reggio Emilia-Inspired “Grown-Up and Me” Class
We are pleased to introduce a “grown-up and me” morning class for children ages 14 to 24 months and their trusted adults. The classes will be held on Tuesday and/or Thursday mornings, from 9:15 to 10:30 a.m., one or two days per week. The fall session lasts seven weeks, from November 1 to December 15, 2016, and will be led by beloved toddler teacher Edith Venturini.
