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

By M.M.E

I Just want to share a couple of things that Nosson represented. Every year on Pesach Nosson’s family go to his grandparents for Pesach. Chol Hamoed - כמהג ישראל we went to Six Flags. What do you do on line waiting for the ride, probably nothing; maybe drive the guy in front of you nuts. What does Nosson do? Learn Tanya Baal Peh. That was Nosson always with a Tanya in his pocket. I heard that when one of the Lubavitcher Roshei Yeshiva was a bocher, he went to yechidus and told the Rebbe that he learned ג"ן פרקים תבע"פ he the Rebbe stood up from his chair and said "!דו ווייס ג"ן פרקים תניא בעל פה" You can (or can't) imagine what went on up there.
Another Pesach we went skiing in Vermont. We had no clue how to ski, so the whole time we were going on the kiddy slope. Finally we decided that we are going to go for the big one! We all just fell down the slope scared out of our lives, but as we got to the bottom we look back and we saw someone coming full force. It was Nosson with his hands stretched out holding his sticks in the air singing Yechi! That was Nosson, The life of the Party.
When we were in Oholei Torah Shiur Daled we would go on mivtzoyim together, I very much dislike going on mitzoyim, but with Nosson it was a whole different story. He would walk into a store or an office or get into a building with אזא שטאלץ like I have never seen before, no shyness, and no embarrassment. I once asked him, "where do you have it, that you can just walk into an office of huge lawyer and argue with the secretary that you need to speak with the Jewish lawyer?" He answered with the Nosson conviction, "what do you mean, this is the Rebbe's Mivtzoyim, it might not always be fun just walking other to any random guy on Wall Street and ask him if he is Jewish, but that's what the Rebbe wants!"
Nosson was the greatest, the best things to say, the greatest smile, the greatest cousin. I miss the calls, "Why don't you call me more often?!” I miss the smile, we all are going to miss dearly, till you march back here with your father and the Rebbe, with Moshiach Now!!
