The High Holy Days at Stephen Wise
Stephen Wise Free Synagogue offers a communal home where you can create a Jewish life for yourself and your family; a home where you can learn, pray, and do good deeds that help repair the world; and a place where you can experience the High Holy Days as deeply meaningful and enriching.
For those who won’t be with us in person, Stephen Wise Free Synagogue is proud to livestream services here on our website at swfs.org/live. All of our virtual offerings will be listed in the schedule below. Want to follow along with your own siddur? At Stephen Wise, we use “Mishkan HaNefesh: Machzor for the Days of Awe” for the High Holy Days.
