Re: Given name SOSCHE #names

My grandmother’s Yiddish name was Soshe and was known as Sadie in the US.  I still have not been able to find her manifest entering the US in or around 1907.  Her maiden name was MOSKOWITZ or various spellings.  My sister was named after her and when she became a Bat Mitzvah as an adult the rabbi told her that Soshe was not a Jewish name and gave her the name Shoshana.
