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.

Make a Difference

By Levi Eisenberg

Dear Family and Friends,
Since its inception, this blog has given the friends and family of my dear brother- in-law Nosson, a sliver of comfort during this very painful time. However, since no amount of words can ever capture the essence of who Nosson was, I feel inadequate to write anything at all. I only feel like sharing the following sentiment:
Nosson’s physical body is no longer with us, but his life is. Saying that Nosson will be missed forever will not suffice to keep his spirit alive and his presence palpable. The only way to have Nosson remain a constant part of our daily lives is to live with Nosson. With that in mind, I would like to make a practical suggestion:
Reflect and examine how many minutes or hours were spent with Nosson on a daily basis, be it in person, on the phone or only in thought. Take that same amount of time out of your day, or as much as you can, and spend it with Nosson. It can range anywhere from 3 extra smiles a day to 5 minutes of learning Tanya bal peh to 10 minutes of doing kind deeds to others to learning the duration of a certain seder with a Chayos and Geshmak to doing mivtzoim with passion and a Shturem. These minutes or hours will keep Nosson not as a part of the past but as a presence of the present.
