Beth-haccerem

Easton’s Bible Dictionary

Beth-haccerem : 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.
