Sepharad, or Sefarad, or Sfard, is a biblical place name of
uncertain location. It is mentioned only once in the Bible, in the
Book of Obadiah Obadiah 1:20. There are, however, Persian
inscriptions that refer to two places called "Saparda" one area in
Media and another in Asia Minor. It is speculated that Sepharad
could have been Sardis. Since the period of Roman Antiquity, after
the Peshitta of the 2nd century, Spanish Jews gave the name
"Sepharad" to the Iberian peninsula. The descendants of Iberian
Jews refer to themselves as Sephardi Jews (Hebrew, plural:
Sephardim) and identify Spain as "Sepharad" in modern Hebrew.
