Members of Nosson’s Shul gathered for an annual event marking the shul’s anniversary and the yartzeit of its namesake Nosson Deitsch a”h, together with a Lag B’Omer celebration.

The Shul was founded on Lag B’omer 5770 in memory of Nosson Deitsch a”h, by a number of his friends, just a short few hours after his tragic passing.

In the years since, it has grown, under the leadership of Rabbi Chaim Yisroel Wilhelm, and Shul President Mendy Wilhelm, to be a pride of the entire Crown Heights community. Earlier this year, the shul moved to a new building in South Crown Heights, where they serve as a beacon of Torah, tefillah and community.
