    Rabbi Pollack had two brothers here in the states. One was named Yoel who was very involved in the Sh’erit ha-Pletah. The famed Dr. Burstein who lived in Williamsburg was a SIL of the other brother (I forgot his name at the moment).

    Rabbi Pollacks son, Rabbi Yaacov, has pulpited at Cong. Shomrei Emunah (Boro no Park) for over 30 years. Earlier he was in Jackson Heights, Queens.
