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.

Just met him, felt like I've known him all my life.

By Luis Carmona

I almost did not go to Shabbos services this last week. I was exhausted from a bad week and thought that staying home would help me. But I got up and went to services at Chabad of Brandon, Florida. When I got there I was introduced to Nosson and immediately he made an impression. He asked my name which he repeated all throughout the morning and during davening sat next to me to make sure I was in the same upbeat spirit he was in. He told me he was going to tell me a story about Napoleon, I was guessing because of my short statue I remind him about this story. He had told me he was a month away from being a Rabbi and in my thoughts I wondered how he was going to be as a Rabbi, and how his personality would bring many Jews back to Judaism. We had finish services and he never told me the story of Napoleon, so I said I'll ask him tomorrow at the Lag Omar picnic. Well that picnic never came and I was devastated. I have mourned this young man which I just met more than if he was family. I will never understand why this happened or what my Napoleon story was, but I'm glad I went to services last Shabbos and met Nosson.
