Eitan Stories

May 3, 2013

My fondest memory of Eitan was probably when I first got to know him. He was on my Color War team at Camp Avoda when I was in Bunk 14 in 2007. He was 13. We were the Blue Animals, and Eitan certainly played like one. Everyone was nervous on our team because we were pla...

Eitan and Lisë were our pot of gold at the end of an I-95 rainbow. Last August (2012), my son Reid and I set out for freshman orientation at the University of Miami. En route Reid decided to check in with his assigned roommate to find out if he wanted to get a fridge f...

I had a bunch of classes with Eitan at Rindge, and my favorite one was AP Lang with Mr. Jordan. Eitan and I sat next to each other, and we were pivot partners, so every class we talked or debated the issues Mr. Jordan brought up. Eitan always loved to play devils advoc...

I met Eitan through peer leadership in my junior year. Throughout the semester, I got to know him, as well as Kerri, Mae, and Lauren, the other girls in the class. We spent a lot of time talking together, and it was a really lovely group of people, though we occasional...

Eitan was a big fan of TV shows from a young age. He just seemed to know what was on. In preschool he loved Blue’s Clues. And in first grade it was The Powerpuff Girls. (I’m not sure how he discovered these shows, since supposedly we had limited TV watching time, but h...

Dear Ms. Stern, Mr. Robbins and Family:

My name is Joshua Rosenberg, and I am currently pledging the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity at the University of Miami.  I wanted to write to you to express my sincerest condolences for the passing your son, Eitan.  I had only known...

To start, it must be said I did not know Eitan as well as I would have liked. I first met him, if my memory serves correct, in Ms. Weisbart's World History Class during our Freshman Year at CRLS. I still have vivid memories of Ms. Weisbart calling him "Mr. Stern-Robbin...

Well, Eitan was in fact one of the first people to befriend me when I came last year to the States! I moved from Norway to go to CRLS for a year and in my first class of the semester, AP calc class, I had no friends what so ever. Eitan was the first to talk to me, and...

It must have been after the Tim Burton Batman movies came out because everyone had Batman products. Eitan and Matisse had Batman and Robin figures and I was playing alone with my Poison Ivy figure, which at the time was a pretty weird "girls toy". Eitan came up and ask...

When I started working with the students at Terrascope Youth Radio, I don't know what I was expecting. I think it was somewhere between bland sciency pieces (the sort I, in retrospect, was producing) or unimpressive fluffy pieces. Eitan quickly showed me that neither e...
