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.

My fond memories of Nosson

By Roger Stoch

I had the privilege of meeting a VERY special Family in Dec '09 when attending the Chaseneh of my close friends David & Miri Birk, in Middelberg Virginia.

The Deitsch Family is certainly a very special Family and one that I immediately felt a part of.

Rabbi Levi insisted that we stay with his mother Cyrel in Crown Heights where we were headed after the wedding.

It was at this time that I came to see the most unbelievable warmth from Mrs Cyrel Deitsch and five of her children.

This was my first visit to Crown Heights as well as my first visit to the US.

This was truly a special Shabbat - one that I will always remember.

Nosson returned 'home' erev Channukah, where I was able to spend some time with this impressive young man.

It is with great sadness that I learnt of his passing but at the same time I was comforted that I had been privileged to get to meet an incredible special person - My photographs of Nosson capture some of his qualities that I will always remember.
