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.

Nosson always in a happy mood


By Yankee Junik

I am learning in the Yeshiva Gedola of Miami this year where I first met Nosson. Here is just a short story of the many wonderful things I saw Nosson do. One night after night seder Nosson said to few bocherim that he is going to a wedding taking place in Miami Beach (where a few of the shluchim & smicha bocherim in our yeshiva were already there to make the simcha fraylach). Nosson stayed in yeshiva till the end of night seder to learn. After night Seder, Nosson took me & a few bocherim in the car. While driving to the wedding Nosson saw a non -Jew waiting by a quiet corner for the bus. (Busses at that hour do not come very often). Nosson immediately stopped the car & offered the person a ride saying we have one extra space in the car. Then he drove him to where he needed to go which was on the way to the wedding. Coincidently, this person who wasn't even Jewish worked in a kosher restaurant & it was a big kiddush hashem. “That was Nosson,” stopping at any opportunity to help anyone, he didn't have to but Nosson wanted to.

Nosson, the past week in yeshiva has been the hardest. We miss the greeting & smile in the morning from you. I looked forward to the chayos you gave zal during davening, the varmkeit when you learnt every day. Even by the meals, just listening to you when you spoke. The little Farbrengens you randomly made at night after seder was so geshmak. The hachlotos you got me to do during this year are staying and being everlasting with me. Nosson we love you, we miss you, yeshiva is very different without you it just doesn't feel the same, awaiting for your return, Moshiach Now!
