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.

Never too Busy

By Shimon Shur

A more recent memory which exemplifies Nosson's Mivtzoyim habits was this year the second Shabbos Chanukah, Nosson and a few friends of mine from Yeshiva came to spend Shabbos with me here in Bal Harbour, 5 minutes before Licht Bentchen when every one was getting out of (or getting in) the shower and getting dressed, Nosson was standing on my porch without his shirt, when he saw this fellow walking down the street with worn out clothes and briefcase on his back, (he looked like a real Shnurer) so he screams at this guy excuse me are you Jewish, to which the guy replied yes!, so he screams wait a second am coming down, he runs out of the apt and he brings this guy upstairs, he put on Teffilin with him then prepared a Menorah for the guy to light, which the guy lit for the first time in who knows how many years.

Turns out this fellow learnt in Landau Yeshiva over 30 years ago and since been through some really tough patches in his life, this guy was on his way to catch the bus to the casino to gamble and to do who knows what else, when Noson shleped him in to my apt. to put on Teffilin and light the Menorah with him, that was Nosson doing mivtzoyim in a time and place, when other people would "be too busy" doing other things, and with a person that any regular guy would not even look at, never mind approach, Nosson was there for him.
