Caphar-Zachariae ("village of Zacharias"), a place mentioned by Sozomen (Hist. Eccl. 9:17) as lying in the region of Eleutheropolis, and apparently visited by Willibald on his way from Gaza to Hebron (Travels, p. 20, Bohn). It seems to have been different from the Bath-Zacharias (q.v.) of the Apocrypha (1 Macc. 6:32) and Josephus (Ant. 12:9, 4). It is probably the modern Kefr Zekaria (Robinson, Researches, 2:34), a village on the north side of Wady Surot, opposite Tell Zacharia, about half way between Jerusalem and Ashkelon (Van de Velde, Narrative, 2:192). SEE CAPHARORSA.
