Stephen Wise Free Synagogue has a rich history of integrating music into all aspects of our synagogue life.
There are many ways to get involved musically at Stephen Wise — from our Musical Mitzvah choir group to chanting during services to participating in our legendary annual Purim spiel.
For more than 30 years, the annual purim spiel has been one of Stephen Wise Free Synagogue’s most popular traditions. It features congregants of all ages and levels of talent.
We welcome our congregants to participate in our Shabbat, High Holy Days, and festival readings as lay chanters or ba’alei koreh, masters of chanting.
If you are interested in improving your Hebrew reading and chanting skills through group or individual tutorial, or if you are interested in becoming a regular participant in the chanting of Torah, Haftarah, and Megillah readings throughout the year as a ba’al koreh, please contact Cantor Dan Singer at firstname.lastname@example.org or (212) 877-4050, ext. 237.
Besides our participatory and musical prayer services, we enjoy a wide variety of performances throughout the year for our holidays and other special occasions. Check out our calendar for upcoming events.
