Avodah (worship) is one of our central pillars here at Stephen Wise.
Our synagogue is open for Friday evening and Saturday morning services! All worshippers ages 2+ are required to wear masks while in our sanctuary. And we ask that everyone planning to come to our synagogue please complete this health questionnaire on the day they will be entering our building.

We offer an array of joyous and interactive services for families with children through our Family Experiences. And for our adult members, we offer plenty of opportunities to keep learning and stay connected through cultural, educational, and social programming, including weekly lay-led Shabbat morning Torah study and alternative minyanim.
And whether it’s dancing in the streets and enjoying ice cream and pickles (a Stephen Wise tradition) for Simchat Torah, participating in our world-famous annual Purim Spiel or observing Rosh Hashanah or Yom Kippur, holidays are more fun when you spend them with your friends and family at Stephen Wise!
