Re: Sofa, Palestine #general

I obtained a New York naturalization for Eva Erdstein.
According to the document she was born in Sofa, Palestine in 1897
and married Rabbi Max ERDSTEIN in 1914 in Sofa. Where is Sofa, Palestine?

Albert Braunstein

Stan Goodman: it might also be Tsova, quite near
to Jerusalem.
The only problem with that assessment is that Tzova was founded in
1948 by the Palmach Harel group. Albert is referring to 1897 and 1914
dates. I cannot think of anything close to that orthography which is/
was also place where Jews lived.
