GLEN RIDGE, NJ - Christ Church of Bloomfield / Glen Ridge invites the community to a performance of the Passion Play by Dzici Theatre on Palm Sunday April 9 at 10:30 a.m. 

Set in the shadow of the Warsaw ghetto, Dzieci refined their text from the earliest existing translations, relying heavily on the Aramaic Pashita, incorporating Hebraic song and chant, and ritual elements of Judaism. 

The Passion Play will be incorporated into the Palm Sunday service. Christ Church's tradition is to gather in the Parish Hall, process down Bloomfield Avenue with their palms proclaiming “Hosanna” before entering the church.  The service continues as with the telling of the moment of Jesus entered Jerusalem after spending 40 days in the desert. It will conclude with the passion.

Dzieci Theatre has performed this at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine (Episcopal), and churches throughout New York.  This will be their New Jersey premier. The 10:30 a.m. service will be the only one on Palm Sunday.

Christ Church Bloomfield / Glen Ridge is at 74 Park Avenue Glen Ridge NJ 07028.
