I was just reading about Nosson on your blog. I never met him but from what I read I thought of contributing something important.
It seems that he set a clear example of lifestyle and being rather than routine ritual and religiosity. His dedication made things spiritual and his energy reminds me
of my rabbi here in Ottawa. I feel that this example of being and living is something that must be continued in your yeshivas so that you can now each set an example so that other members have this true essence of what Judaism is about and can spread that in every areas of your lives.
Most synagogues I find are dry and I being a lady, notice that people are too quick to judge one another on how great a jew or how much they studied or know
or how religious they are. It seems most should follow the opposite and do as Nosson did by living the correct message about being and doing from a place of truth and warmth. It was refreshing to read about him I wish I could have met him. I hope you all keep his example alive by living with all that love happiness and positive inspiring energy that he demonstrated through yeshivas and synagogues.
