Welcome to TobyEagle.com, a website devoted to perpetuating the memory of Toby Eagle, z"l, with positive actions and ideas that we hope will make the world a better place.

Every year on the 19th of Menachem Av Toby's yahrzeit is observed around the country in many beautiful and meaningful ways. For more detail click here.

Toby was a vibrant 20-year-old from Baltimore, Maryland who lost her life in a tragic car accident near Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on August 3, 2007 (19 Menachem Av 5767). As befits Toby, she and two companions were on their way to celebrate Shabbat with friends and campers (including a young boy who had lost his mother) at Camp Gan Israel, Myrtle Beach, where Toby worked two summers earlier.

Toby was the second of eleven children and a leader both inside and outside the home. After being home-educated for most of her life, she chose to attend Bnos Rabbeinu High School in Chicago, Illinois, at the age of 14.

Toby was, above all, an intensely spiritual person who immersed herself in the teachings of Chassidus and the writings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, of saintly memory. Toby bridged the gap between the spiritual and the material. She was a talented violinist and a black belt in Tae Kwon Do. She was passionate about the study of science from a young age and aspired to earn a joint MD/PhD degree. Her goal was to do medical research and join the battle against cancer and other diseases. Toby was exceptionally gifted in the laboratory and with anything that involved intricate assembly.

Toby was an "MB3" major at Towson University (Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, and Bioinformatics), where she was in the honors program and on the Dean's list. She also took classes during the summer and worked as an intern in cancer research at Johns Hopkins Medicine.
