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.

Shabbos on a Stool?

By M.B.

A few months back Nosson, myself and a few other bochurim spent Shabbos by Chabad of Downtown Miami, because the shliach was out of town. Before I tell my story, I would like to mention that despite none of us knowing a soul in the shul, without missing a beat Nosson sat down and farbrenged for a few hours! I guess when you have tochen your not embarrassed by strangers! One thing he spoke about, the highlight of the farbrengen, was (and I'm quoting the man he said it to, who reminded me of the farbrengen this past Monday):"The human mind is finite so it is impossible to comprehend an infinite G-d's actions"!
As we sat down, just us bochurim for the friday night meal, two of the bochurim (not Nosson) sat down on stools because there weren't enough regular chairs. Right away Nosson objected and said he would go find more chairs by one of the neighbors. We were on the fifth floor, and the closest neighbor we knew was on the nineteenth! Sure enough Nosson climbed fourteen stories, by himself; just so two friends wouldn't have to eat the Shabbos seuda on stools!
