Nosson was in Miami beach Florida as a “eltere” bochur and mashgiach for mornings and night sader. I was honored to be a bochur in the yeshiva this year. As we all know the bochrim that are a little energetic have a close kesher with the mashgiach and especially when you’re talking about Nosson. I have countless stories and memories of him. And here are two of them that just happened this past week.
one night I came over to him during Seder Chasidus at night I asked him Nosson explain to me, why do you work so hard every day to make sure all the bochrim are here and marked, just relax, and just do your job, mark, And let the menhel take care of the rest. (because Nosson didn’t stop for nothing he marked, then came around, then marked again, and came around again, spoke to you again and again. he just didn’t stop.)
He looked at me and answered very seriously, he said "the nachas I get from watching a full Zal learning Chasidus is worth all the trouble". and he chuckled "it’s just such a big "taiveh" (desire)
a guy in the Miami community came over the Thursday night before lag baomer, He came with a bag of stale chips and a bottle arak mashke (lets just say not your best tasting drink) to farbreng for his fathers yortzeit. The bochrim laughed him off and left the room, but Nosson sat down with him and farbranged with him one on one for 4 hours, and drank the whole bottle because the man himself said he couldn't say lechaim because he had work the next day so Nosson said "if you can’t then I will have to".
