They started their family there with the birth of their sons Yitzchak and Mickey. In 1956, they emigrated to the USA. Their family grew with the birth of their daughter Rachel. Sara and Joe lived in NYC where they raised their family. Joe and Sara valued family and their Jewish traditions above all else.
