Ramah in Benjamin or Er Ram (Ramah)

Ramah in Benjamin was a city of ancient Israel, where there was a reference to the Jeremiah prophecy about Rachel, that is said to be fulfilled with the gruesome slaughter of boy children when the Herod was king, it’s also the town that was home to Samuel’s mother Hannah and his father Elkanah. And it’s the town where the captives were assembled before being moved to Babylon (Jeremiah 40:1), when Jerusalem was destroyed by the Babylonians.  Map.
