Janice,

There is a Leo KAIDAN arriving in 1907, and he's going to his brother. 
Lots more details on the manifest.

Also, have you seen Leo's WW1 draft card?  Also provides interesting clues to his place of birth:

You can search the databases on JewishGen at:
https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/
You can search for info on specific towns, info for names in specific regions, and more.  Keep in mind that spelling of names was not precise, so consider doing soundex searches on surnames.

Hope this helps,
