It is with great sadness we report on the petira of R’ Dovid Trenk.
Rabbi Trenk was the original trailblazer in chinuch. Decades before there was an OurPlace, The Minyan Shelanu, The Living Room, and Waterbury Yeshiva, Reb Dovid was out on the front lines recruiting and inspiring boys, often those shunned or disappointed by others or society.
Unconditional support, encouragement, understanding and love that created a unique connection and bond with Hashem, his Torah and Klal Yisroel. That was the Trenk method. Reb Dovid looked for the talent and kishronos in each child and found a way to build up their self-esteem. Sports, music, art, anything it took. Rabbi Trenk was the greatest flight instructor in history for he made all of us believe we could fly.
The Levaya will take place tomorrow Monday morning at 10:30 in Kehal Zichron Yaakov (Rabbi Gissenger’s Shul) 175 Sunset Road in Lakewood.
