Re: When only part of the family emigrates to the US #usa

In addition to Ken's reasoning, in this case the wife was the one who had a family member to go to.  If it had been a brother instead of a sister, maybe the husband would have come first.  But to send him to live with her sister-- that would have been unacceptable under Jewish customs.   So she and the kids came (after all , the woman takes care of the children).  Once she has safely arrived and is established then he can come.
