RE­MEM­BER­ING

The Jewish Chronicle - - LIFE -

WHILE the 45th Pres­i­dent of the United States is cur­rently mak­ing head­lines, it’s the 35th Pres­i­dent who’ll be in the spot­light in Mas­sachusetts this year. 2017 marks the cen­ten­nial of John Fitzger­ald Kennedy’s birth, with events to cel­e­brate JFK’s many links to the state.

Born in Brook­line, where he lived un­til he was 10, the fu­ture Pres­i­dent later stud­ied at Har­vard — and just across the river in Bos­ton you can still see his favourite seat at the his­toric Union Oys­ter House, now called ‘The Kennedy Booth’, with fish and sal­ads on the menu as well as shell­fish.

A spe­cial ex­hi­bi­tion chron­i­cling his life opens in May at the city’s John F Kennedy Pres­i­den­tial Mu­seum and Li­brary, or head out to Cape Cod with an­other ex­hi­bi­tion on his life and legacy also open­ing in May at the John F Kennedy Hyan­nis Mu­seum, not to men­tion events year-round in Brook­line. masshol­i­day.co.uk
