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.

He has made a HUGE impact on my life!

By Anonymous

This moitzei shabbos, I went on collive.com and to my shock I saw the untimely passing of yet another deitsch. I was shocked. How could this happen again? I remember about 2 weeks after lag baomer, I was reading one of those weekly lchaim pamphlet and the slice of life column was about our dear nosson. As I read a few things about his remarkable character, I was deeply touched and moved - especially by his unseen ahavas yisroel and the fact that he knew the whole Tanya by heart! That night, I checked on collive for his nosson deitsch, OBM, 21 and I actually felt the intense pain of the commentators. I also discovered this blog so I went on and spent the whole night (not kidding, 'till 7:00 AM) reading and crying my eyes out! Also, i was gathering inspiration; Nosson's unique personality is something that I have never seen before in my life and I marvel at how a person can be so full of good and joyfulness. It puts things into petspective, a lot! For me, nosson epitomizes the essence of what a chossid is and what is right. I cried that night because I wondered how hashem could do this to us and shatter so many peoples minds (including my own, even though I never had the zechus to meet him). I decided that if everyone nosson knew would take something on, it would at least make this crazy time a little worthwhile, so right then and there, I wrote an email to Chabad.org asking them to make the mitzva campaign like they did for the Holtzbergs a"h. They told me it was a very nice letter but nothing came out of it. The reason I'm writing all this is because now, lets make our own campaign and BREAK THE GATES OF HEAVEN OPEN WITH OUR MITZVOS cuz' this overly messed up golus has got to end!! I guess I'm leaving the details of this campaign up to the heads of this blog (even though I'd be glad to help- you have my email) but it should definately be leleui nishmas nosson notah Ben zalmen yuda a"h v' Levi yitzchok Ben zalmen yuda a"h. Nosson would have for sure jumped to do something like this and help so many yidden to get closer to their tiere tatte in shomayim.
Just to add, since I heard about him, nosson has been my role model and if was/am ever not sure what to do in a situation, I think to myself, "what would nosson do?" i always know what to di then- what the rebbe wants and what would do and make hashem proud.
He has made a HUGE impact on my life (which is something pretty crazy since I never even met him- but apparently I'm not the first one to be so inspired:) and he is responsible for many of the mitzvos and workings on my character, as well as extra ahavas yisroel, simcha in everything, etc... I actually took on today to learn the english of Tanya chitas for the next thirteen weeks (and will iy"h will continue). He also inspired me to write to the rebbe more often and to be a better chossid. Thank you nosson! May we merit to see him again with Moshiach NOW!!!!!!!!!! (nosson! Bang on those gates for us in a way that only you know how!)

Have a gr8 day!!!
Moshiach now!!!
