Beth-haccerem

Beth-haccerem [N] [H]

house of a vineyard, a place in the tribe of Judah ( Nehemiah 3:14 ) where the Benjamites were to set up a beacon when they heard the trumpet against the invading army of the Babylonians ( Jeremiah 6:1 ). It is probable that this place is the modern 'Ain Karim, or "well of the vineyards," near which there is a ridge on which are cairns which may have served as beacons of old, one of which is 40 feet high and 130 in diameter.
