They left behind their parents and younger sister. The reason why they had to go is that the Iranian Revolution happened which was held by Shia Muslims. As David and his brother are Jewish it was thought best that they should go elsewhere. After traveling in two European countries they were admitted into the United States. They both completed high school and then David got a full scholarship to learn medicine.
