I had the pleasure of knowing Idan through through his brother as they both worked summer camp. He was the annoying younger brother, constantly messing with Gilad or other counselors... simply persistently annoying. But, what I quickly realized was everything Idan did was out of love. His jokes, his quips, his 'annoyance'. All was done to try to make others laugh, to make others smile, to make others happy. Idan was simply sharing his love. The world lost out on a truly wonderful person.

My name is Al Esposito professional Drummer and teacher, my heart was broken when I heard the news of the passing of my student. Idan began taking private drum lessons with me when he was about 8 years old and through out high school, Idan practiced and worked so hard to be the best he could be and became an excellent Drummer. I have so many wonderful memories of him throughout all those years. His wonderful smile will be forever in my memory, and his kindness and thoughtfulness was such a big part of his overall amazing character. You will be greatly missed by everyone who knew you. We will meet again! 🥁❤️

Idan was often the backup conductor for our Binghamton Pep Band and was one of our best drummers. He was a natural leader, who treated every member of the group with respect and caring. As a senior alumni member of the group, I saw him to be balanced in life. As the director, his tempos were always right on but when he put those drum sticks in his hand you could see him go Pep Band crazy and also see his love for music. His joy was infectious. One time when I got in trouble for being out of uniform for Engineer's Week (I was wearing my Engineering shirt vs Pep Band shirt), he came to find me in the stands at the basketball game we were playing at and asked if he could help. He was already an Engineer at heart. A young man well beyond his years. We will always remember his spirit in the Screamin' Green BU Pep Band.

Idan was in my classes for Electronics and Circuits at Binghamton. They were big classes, so I didn't know everybody, but I did know him. He was a very conscientious and kind young man with a sense of humor who asked a lot of questions and made sure I didn't schedule exams on major Jewish holidays. My condolences to his family.

I will never forget Idan's energy, love, and passion. I admire few people so wholeheartedly but I have true admiration for Idan. He always showed unwavering kindness to each and every person. Even when things got tough, he found a way to smile and laugh through it all. Being in BU's Pep Band with him and being a member of the executive board alongside him was an honor. He often reminded me why I loved pep band, too: to be with people like him and to play music together. I truly love him so much. I will forever carry with me all I've learned from being Idan's friend: if you love something, love it wholeheartedly; spread kindness; be unapologetically yourself; and always look for the goodness in others - as he did for each of us in the Pep Band and all of those he came across. The picture I shared is one of my favorites and a classic moment with him - goofy, silly, and full of laughs and smiles. I miss you so much, Idan. I am sure you will always be cheering each and every one of us on, just as you always did. My deepest condolences to his family.

I remember being in freshman orientation in college with him. I felt a connection with him even though I only knew him for a few days. He also liked math and music. I remember him raising his hand during a group activity and sharing to us that he was a "huge math and physics nerd" and wanting to get to know him after. He gave off nothing but positive energy, he had a really nice British sounding accent, and was one of the coolest people I've known. We talked a little about some bands we both liked throughout orientation in the dorm room. I remember thinking that he was going to be my first friend in college. It's unfortunate that we went our separate paths after orientation. He was pretty much the first person I talked to at Binghamton. I'm sure I could have learned a lot from him, and we could have been pretty good friends.... Rest in peace brother....

Idan was always an outgoing and happy young man. It was a privilege to have been able to be a classmate of his throughout high school. You will be missed my dear friend! My condolences to his whole family!

Idan was a pivotal member of the Songwriters Club from 2015-2017. He brought much laughter, teamwork, and ultimately goodness to every session. He was always a beacon of light to others in the club. More specifically, his role as a drummer in his band POI was simply memorable for the two years they made music together. The Songwriters Club at White Plains High School will miss him dearly, and our deepest condolences to the beautiful Greenstein family.

I had the pleasure of teaching Idan photography at WPHS. He was such a joyful, funny and creative student. Whenever I would see him in the halls he was always surrounded by friends, smiling or laughing. He inspired me and all the other students around him. It was a gift to know him.

Tragic news hearing about the passing of Idan. I had the privilege of getting to know what a great human he was on a Birthright trip to Israel. His passion for our faith of Judaism was unending, he inspired others to connect further with their faith. Many of the group will be holding the sabbath this week to honor him. A great memory of mine with Idan was at the Western Wall on Shabbat. He knew all the songs that had been sung and his smile and laughter as we all got closer to one another was clearly evident that day. Sending love from his Mayanot 162 family to his family and Ellie, we were all very lucky to get to know Idan while exploring Israel together.
