Yad Kennedy is located seven miles from downtown Jerusalem, Israel on a hill to the south of Saint John in the Wilderness. It is a memorial to John F. Kennedy, President of the United States, who was assassinated in 1963. Yad Kennedy was financed by contributions from Jewish communities in the USA.

It can be reached by taking the road which runs southeast from Hadassah and turning right into a road to the village of Ora. The monument is 2 miles beyond the village.

The memorial, 60 feet high, is shaped like a fallen tree trunk, symbolizing a persons' life cut short. Inside is a bust of John F. Kennedy, with an eternal flame burning in the center. It has 51 columns, each bearing the emblem of a state & the District Of Columbia..

The monument and adjoining picnic grounds are part of the John F. Kennedy Peace Forest.

The easy way to get to Jerusalem, is to fly into the Ben Gurion International Airport. The airport is close to Jerusalem, which is about 5 miles away.

The Ben Gurion International Airport, (IATA: TLV, ICAO: LLBG), also referred to by its Hebrew acronym Natbag, is the largest and busiest international airport in Israel. It was named the best airport in the Middle East by the ACI organisation.[ The airport is located near the city of Lod, 15 km (9 mi) southeast of Tel Aviv. It is operated by the Israel Airports Authority, a government-owned corporation that manages all public airports and border crossings in the State of Israel. The Ben Gurion International Airport is considered one of the world's most secure airports, with a security force that includes both police officers and IDF soldiers.
