Ramat Beit HaKerem

Ramat Beit Hakerem

Ramat Beit HaKerem (Hebrew: רמת בית הכרם‎) (lit. Beit HaKerem Heights) is a Jewish neighborhood in Jerusalem, Israel. It was established in 1991 on a hill between Beit HaKerem to the north, the Givat Ram campus of the Hebrew University to the east and Bayit VeGan to the southwest.


In 1951, Israel Military Industries built a munitions factory on some of the land that became Ramat Beit HaKerem. It closed down in 1997,[1] but environmental groups say the ground is polluted with toxic chemicals despite clean up attempts.[2] Ramat Beit HaKerem, Beit HaKerem, Givat Beit HaKerem, and Yefeh Nof neighborhoods are sometimes considered one "ultra neighborhood" called "Beit HaKerem Rabati" (lit. Greater Beit HaKerem).[3] The master plan for the neighborhood includes 2,500 apartments.[4]
