NVJBF: Scott Reich - The Power of Citizenship: Why John F. Kennedy Matters to a New Generation
Jewish Community Center of Northern Virginia
Fairfax, VA
Share this event:

When John F. Kennedy became president, he emphatically declared that "the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans." Fifty years after his death, the torch is once again being passed. Scott D. Reich's new book offers a fresh voice on Kennedy's legacy that speaks to a new generation and explains why a re-discovery of this era is needed now more than ever.

The New Frontier, the name Kennedy gave to his vision for America, was an adventurous time in our collective memory during which individuals were inspired to ask what they could do for their country and strived to fulfill their obligations as citizens.

Reich breathes new meaning into JFK's conceptions of citizenship and public service, evoking the enthusiasms and aspirations of the 1960s and the principles Kennedy so eloquently advanced. The Power of Citizenship offers an inspirational tool for readers seeking to solve the "gap" by providing valuable insight into how we can lift our country to new heights of national greatness.

(Current Affairs) Our World Today and in the Future is a discussion group that meets once a month. Participants are welcome to bring a dairy or parve lunch; coffee and tea will be provided. Book signing with author following event.
