NVJBF: Scott Reich - The Power of Citizenship: Why John F. Kennedy Matters to a New Generation
World of Beer
Arlington, VA
Share this event:

A JCCNV Young Adult 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. Scott 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.

Scott is a practicing attorney at Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP in New York. In 2010, he was appointed by the Governor of New York to serve on the College Council of SUNY College at Old Westbury. He serves on the national board of the Union for Reform Judaism, the board of directors of the School for Language and Communication Development, and the board of trustees of Temple Sinai in Roslyn Heights, New York. Reich earned a B.A. in history and communication from the University of Pennsylvania and a J.D. from the University of Pennsylvania Law School, where he was president of his class. He founded "Sinai in the City," which offers young adult programming for Jewish 20s and 30s.

$10 advance ticket; $15 at the door. Ticket includes one beverage and munchies. Location accessible to Ballston Metro (Orange Line).

The Northern Virginia Jewish Book Festival (NVJBF) runs November 2-13 (plus a special event on the 18th). Ten authors visit the JCCNV in Fairfax. Plus family events and a book sale!
