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 loss for the world

By Jim Myska

I only met Nosson once or twice, and never had the privilege of getting to know him well. But the impact of a couple of quick meetings was immense.

Nosson was a ball of energy, a light in whatever room he was in. I was somewhat awed by his sincere exuberance and bursting love of life and his fellow man - I don't think his love of others was confined only to his fellow Jews. He reminded me of all the ways the ideals of my youth have been worn and battered as I've grown older and fought the battles of life...and his reminding me of that was and is a very Good Thing. Because his mere presence for a couple of brief periods of my life was a clarion call to reconnect with my ideals and listen more to them than to all the things that would have me compromise them.

Nosson was one of the truly good people that we very badly need more of. I do not know G-d's reasons, and I do not question them, but I do know that the world is a darker place for his absence.
