Looking for info on Russian Jewish "arranged marriages"

Posted: 1235753803000
Classification: Immigration
Surnames: SHERMAN
I'm researching a family whose parents had a "marriage arranged in Russia". I know that Jewish immigration to the US was effectively closed sometime in 1924. Their first child was born in 1927 so I'm wondering if they were married in Russia or if the husband "arranged" for a bride to be sent from Russia or some other story. The family's name is SHERMAN and I have lots of possibilities in the 1930 Census - I'm trying to narrow them down by using the year(s) the husband and wife immigrated.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks,
