This blog is dedicated to our dear friend, Nosson Deitsch OBM, who was tragically torn away from us on Lag B’Omer 5770.

Nosson was a one-of-a kind Bochur who influenced many people, from all ages and backgrounds. He had a perpetual smile on his face and an extremely generous heart. He would do the biggest favor for a friend with only a moment’s notice. All those who knew him feel they had a unique relationship with him.

There are many untold stories of his selflessness, kindness, and the affect he had on countless lives. Please share your story, so that others can get a glimpse into his unique character and towering accomplishments.

It was always someone else

By Mendy Lein

Spending the last few month in Miami with Nosson, I learned something I did not always know about him, (all though we spoke often) but when I lived with him, I learned his mood was not his because of him, but his cause someone he knew, I would ask him Nosson why you in such a good mood now what happened? He would tell me that a friend called him and said he got the job he wanted, and yesterday I was nervous for him I was hoping it works out. And from being there I can tell you he was it was on his mind it better work out for him, I hope it dose. and that’s the way Nosson rolled when people told him their personal good news he was happy, and when they were waiting nervous for a positive answer he was also waiting for the answer, as if it was about him his interests were the people he knew, and as soon as he would hear something good about someone he loved to come and say btw I’m so happy that guy won a raffle or got a job and so on.

  1. It is extraordinary to read about elevated middos in a young man. I've read biographies about great men and you expect to read great things about them, but about a yeshiva bochur? In today's day and age? Someone who consistently acted this way? The anecdotes written about Nosson are that much more impactful because he was an "ordinary guy." When we read about a great man we can excuse ourselves from acting like him by saying, "I'm not on that medreiga," but when it's an "ordinary guy," we have no excuses!
