In German, a Z is pronounced TS. So that narrows the field ... though it probably doesn't apply to Yiddish, where I think a Z does what it does in English. And I can't see how p can morph into f; ph, yes. I'm also used to the Zip-pour-ah version, and I've heard some Tsip-pour-ahs, but the world's a big place!
