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.

Lesson For All

By D.C.

Dear Rabbi Deitsch,

I, who don't even know Nosson, was so amazed by what his friends have said of him that I have spoken of him several times this week to others. In today's world, people don't take a personal interest in others unless they are your family or a VERY close friend. Nosson took the concept of friendship to a new level and completely redefined it. It is such an "ah-ha" moment to think of all that could be possible in the world if EVERYONE were to reach out to others around them (not just their family and their closest of friends) and treat them as a REAL friend, to demonstrate caring, compassion, to merely NOTICE that they might need something that YOU could provide. Couldn't such a universal moment of true friendship be what would "Bring Moshiach Now" as I see written on many Chabad materials. For Conservative Jews like me, its tough to understand that concept, but in seeing the world through a "Nosson" Lens, I think I can just grasp the meaning and promise of it.
