perience. He wrote, "My father
denied he was a Jew and I my-
self did not know that I was
Jewish until I was 11 years old
... Every Sunday my mother,
somewhat fearful of my father,
would take me on a long bus
ride, onto the subway and then
on another bus ride to Brooklyn
where I would be given a rudi-
mentary Hebrew lesson so that
I could be bar mitzvah."
Others have written poetry,
given advice or just said con-
gratulations.
Every few days Jacob calls his
brother just to see how many e-
mail messages there are. Mr.
Miller has read him a few, but
the majority will remain a sur-
prise.
Mr. Miller plans to give Jacob
copies of all the responses in a
bound and glossy book. None of
the responses are edited.
Other books will be left on ta-
bles for guests to read at the bar
mitzvah party.
"As much as I enjoy public
speaking, I was worried about
what to say at my brother's bar
mitzvah," Mr. Miller said. "This
way, over 500 people will have
summed it up for me."
One thing Mr. Miller does not
want is the spotlight.
"The most important thing
about this is that it's his
(Jacob's) bar mitzvah," Mr.
Miller said. "I did this for him.
I don't want it to be a case of,
`Look what I did.' I want it to be
a look at what people did for Ja-
cob." E

Jacob, a seventh-grader at
Hillel Day School, is flattered by
his brother's pending gift. Mr.
Miller originally intended to
keep it a secret, but people start-
ed talking about it long before
Jacob's bar mitzvah.
"I think it's a great idea for
Jews around the world to wish
me a mazel tov on my bar mitz-
vah," Jacob said. "It's a great
way to link Jews from all over
the world. I was really surprised
because I had no clue he (Jason)
was doing this. I knew he was
creative, but not this creative."
One group of responses Jacob
is looking forward to reading are
the letters from seventh-graders
at a Jewish day school in Mary-
land. The teacher made it a
class assignment to write mes-
sages to Jacob, who wants to
read what teens his own age
have to say.
One New York respondent
told Jacob of his bar mitzvah ex-
