Feyga Kofman

March 14, 1922 — March 5, 2022


Beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother passed away just days before her 100th birthday.  Feyga was born in Krivoy Rog, a town in central Ukraine, to Boris and Gann Medvedovsky, on March 14, 1922. Her early life was marked by the hardships of antisemitism causing her family to seek shelter and safety, first in Moscow and later to St. Petersburg, as they fled the pogroms that devastated their towns in Ukraine.  During World War ll, once again they were persecuted, but she was able to survive the Nazi siege of St. Peterburg. Following the war, Feyga graduated from university with a degree in chemistry and married Naum Kofman, who died in 1983 in Russia.

In 1988 Feyga bravely immigrated to the United States with her daughter Esther and family.  In 1993, Feyga became a US citizen.

She was a proud, longtime member of Congregation Beth-El Zedeck.

Feyga is survived by her daughter, Esther (Michael) Zhivov; granddaughter, Olga (Carl Chapman); and great granddaughter, Alize.
