Zorah was situated on the crest of a hill overlooking the valley of Sorek, and was fortified by Rehoboam (2 Chronicles 11:10). It has been identified with Sar'a, 23 kilometers west of Jerusalem near Nahal Sorek.
In Joshua 19:41, Zorah is mentioned in the allotment of the Tribe of Judah, on the border with the Tribe of Dan. It was most likely the Danites that occupied Zorah Judges 18:2, probably the same as Zoreah (Joshua 15:33). This was Samson's birthplace (Judges 13:2), and near it he found a grave (Judges 16:31).
A kibbutz of this Hebrew name is now located nearby.
