Stephen Wise Free Synagogue Spring Benefit 2018


In an extraordinary show of support, nearly 300 people gathered together for the 2018 Spring Benefit, raising more than $1 million for the synagogue. 

Held at Manhattan's Guastavino's, the gala event honored Terry Kassel, Rhonda Steeg, and Jen Stone for their remarkable contributions to the global community. TONY Award winner Christine Ebersole, performed a medley of beloved show tunes in tribute of our honorees. 

The crowd was also addressed by Emmy award winning journalist, Raina Seitel, Borough of Manhattan president, Gale Brewer, Stephen Wise Free Synagogue president, Alan Riffkin, and Rabbi Ammiel Hirsch.

The remarkable generosity of the congregation will enable Stephen Wise to have an even  bigger impact on the local community and beyond.
