Rabbi Trepp is known for his openness in tackling and discussing difficult and sometimes misunderstood or taboo subjects in his well-attended learning fellowships. The bulk of his time is spent going from one coffee shop to another, meeting and studying one-on-one. Faigy’s favorite subject to discuss with students is women’s issues within Judaism. Rabbi and Faigy Trepp welcome countless students to their home for weekly Shabbat meals, and before people know it they are part of the Trepp extended family.
