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.

In honor of the first Yohrtzeit of Nosson Nota Deitsch a short video was put together by a group of his friends showcasing the profound impact he had on all who knew him.

Many have been inspired by Nosson's example to add in their own Ahavas Yisroel, in their own study of Tanya, improve themselves, or add to the greater good in many other areas. Nosson's family has requested that they be informed of all the good things that different people, either as individuals or as part of a group, have been inspired to do by virtue of his example or in his memory. Similarly, anyone who had a personal experience with Nosson is asked to write it down and send it to

If you do not wish your story or good initiative to be publicized, please say so in your email, but please do not withhold your story from Nosson's family.

But we sure feel his presence spiritually

By: Chaya Deitsch

This upcoming Sunday will mark a lot of things. Birthday, weddings, dinners, get-togethers, and it will also mark the Yartziet of my dear uncle, Nosson. It is hard to believe that a year has passed since Nosson, a very alive being, is no longer with us.

My heart aches thinking about all the suffering my family as a whole has gone through. No tears can wash away our sorrow. I wish I had something in my power to just wipe it all away.

You know the saying “absence makes the heart grow fonder" I can vow it does. Every day I’m longing to chat with Nosson online so he can tease me about all sorts of stuff. Every day that passes I think about him and my missing him only increases. I must say he sure did get me angry at times but all in all he was THE best uncle anyone could ask for. While he was alive for those 21 years I will not say I enjoyed when he teased me but now… how I wish I could have him come tease me! If only!

Every day I realize that I have to thank G-d for everything he gave me. Apparently Nosson wasn’t supposed to live till 22 physically but we sure feel his presence spiritually. When I do an act of goodness and kindness, I know Nosson is smiling down at me cheering me on "ya! That’s my niece!" by you doing good deeds, you are fulfilling dreams of countless people. You do Mivtzos and bring Moshiach, Taa Daa no more pain! Taa daa no more longing! It’s almost as if we are given clear directions and we are reading them upside down! If we would only turn them over then Moshiach would be here. Remember Heygiah Z'man Geulas'chem this is the time not tomorrow. Today! Help make it from dream to reality!
