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.

A living example

By Dovid Parshan

I was astounded at a Sicha I learnt this week, divine providence couldn't have led me better. The Rebbe goes on to relate, that though the Jews received the torah on Mt. Sinai, it was still incomplete. Only after mosses’ father in law Yisro, sanctified g-d, by saying "baruch ata hashem", was the torah fully completed.

How can it be, the Rebbe asks, that the sacred and remarkable gift from heaven was only completed, when a “priest” of other paganism deity’s, blessed g-d!??

The answer: Hashem was teaching us a meditation. Just stare out and be overwhelmed at Yisro, a man who was an idol worshiper, priest, and philosopher, who had all the greatest men of his time bowing at his alter, of whom didn't believe in Hashem, and yet then after all the great miracles g-d did for the Jews, he didn’t coward into his home of worship, NO! He believed in Hashem, even coming to the dessert to observe him and bless him.

This was Nosson he did what he believed, not cowering behind the mask of humility. He had a love and passion and brought it out in truth, every step of the way.

I once tried to try to explain someone the way Nosson learned, he was so engrossed in his the learning, he was oblivious to everything else, but the "Taz or Shach"!

In every Mamer he learned, how to fully live with it.

May we be able to take from the lessons he taught us, the strength to continue doing Nosson’s mission to make this world a better place, and bring moshiach.

May we all accept the Torah BSIMCHA UBEPNIMIOUS! Good yom tov.
