A signature experience at Stephen Wise Free Synagogue is our two-year Adult B'nai Mitzvah Program. Our current class graduates in spring 2020, and our next class will start in autumn 2020.

If you missed the opportunity to have a bar or bat mitzvah as a child, if you had a bar or bat mitzvah but want to increase your own Jewish knowledge, or if you simply want to join a community of learners every week in deepening your connection to Judaism, Stephen Wise Free Synagogue’s Adult B’nai Mitzvah Program can help you build a foundation of knowledge about our sacred texts and traditions. The program culminates with a special group b’nai mitzvah service.

No previous Hebrew knowledge required. Classes are led by Rabbi Samantha Natov, with guest teaching by Rabbi Ammiel Hirsch and Cantor Singer.
