Virtual Easter Services in Jersey City

If there’s one thing JC’s got, it’s flavor. And heart—okay so that makes two. For better than two decades, I’ve reaped many a benefit when both flow in glorious dimensions to yield food, music, art, festivals, theater and so much more. So, current guidelines notwithstanding, it’s a sure bet that anyone looking will find the same measure of options, if not greater, for observing this year’s version of Easter festivities.

Rooted in the biblical account of Jesus Christ’s resurrection, Easter is a celebration observed by millions worldwide. On this continent, it is also heralded as the advent of spring and many things colorful. Easter is the culmination of Holy Week, recognized by Christians as beginning with Palm Sunday, the time of Jesus’ arrival in Jerusalem, and continuing to Good Friday, the time of Jesus’ crucifixion. The term Good Friday references Christian belief that the death of Jesus Christ is salvation for all; Easter, also known as Resurrection Sunday, celebrates Christ’s return.

In this time when celebrations are typically communal, ranging from prayer services to elaborate meals to egg hunts, innovation is a must. Though spring couture may be on hold, there are still many opportunities for the faithful to gather in worship.
