Shraga Feivel and Sheina (nee Greenbaum) had at least eight children--five boys and four girls. Some of them immigrated to Palestine. Others, like daughter Fannie (Fejga), immigrated through the port of Philadelphia, eventually moving to New York where she spent the rest of her life. Fannie's sister Devora moved to New York and married Leo Oken. Another sister, Chana Sura, married Yitzchak Lojewski, immigrating first to Cuba, and then to Eretz Israel where they lived with on a kibbutz. Her eldest brother, Mordchaj Juszk remained in Poland and presumably died in the Shoah. Fannie had two brothers who were twins, Chaim Rubin and Lejzor Wolf. Chaim immigrated to Palestine in 1926, where he married Bracha Atlasovitch three years later. They eventually moved to Perth, Australia. Chaim's brother Lejzor Wolf (who changed his name to Lou Green) moved to Massachusetts where he married Bessie Schwartz.
 

Another brother, Avraham Hirsh, nee Abram Gerszk, married Leah (Laitche), remained in Jedwabne and also perished with his family in the Shoah. He and his wife are listed in the Jedwabne Yizkor book as being members of the Jedwabne Fire Brigade. Lastly, her sister Shoshana, whom Fannie and her husband Sam had visited in Israel in the mid sixties, emigrated to Palestine and married Avraham Neiditz.
