My uncle gave me a photocopy of the letter my grandfather gave him, on my uncle's bar mitzvah.


It is as follows:


Dear <J>,

     This is a significant day in your life.  According to Jewish tradition you ar enow considered old enough o be counted a member of the community.  In reality it is only a beginning of your preparation for adult life.  I'm glad to say that your mothe and I are very proud of your progress so far and feel confident that if you continue to try as hard and use the same efforts you used so far, you should have a very happy and successful life.  As you begin to understand what type of life you wish to lead, many problems will confront you and sometimes it will not be easy to reach the right decisions.

     The advice which I as your father can give you is:

  1. Acquire all the knowledge which you possibly can, and keep on learning all the time.
  2. Have courage, don't be afraid and never believe that a thing cannot be done, even if others tell you so.
  3. Believe and trust in God.
  4. Always try to be honest and do what your conscience tells you is the right thing to do.


Good luck to you and may God bless you,
