“The assassination of John F. Kennedy in 1963 was a monumental tragedy in American history. Not since Abraham Lincoln was killed in 1863, has the death of one man had such repercussions on our nation.” Rabbi Blatt said. “This youthful, inspirational and handsome leader had captured the imagination of the American public following a very close election and his sudden, violent death was a shock to the entire American populace.”

Rabbi Blatt continued, “For those of us who remember the events of November 22 and its aftermath, the commemoration of the 50th anniversary will be a very significant moment of reflection. Not only did we lose a great president, but we lost what many refer to as ‘our innocence.’ Through the use of Biblical scripture, inspirational and patriotic music and personal reflections from both religious and civic leaders, I hope that this commemoration can serve as a means of bringing this community together.”

This event is open to the public. There will be light refreshments following the service.  For more information or to RSVP, please call (518) 584-2370 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
