1 hour.
Beware: not all trains stop at Newark Airport.
Getting to JFK -

The best way: public transport
First get to Penn Station (NJ transit, $13 fare)
Then take Long Island Railroad (LIRR) to Jamaica.
Normal Ticket: $6.75-$8.75.
Weekends: buy a CITY ticket instead: $4. :).
You can also go from Penn to Jamaica with the subway or buses (cheaper but not worth it).
