Ho'rem (Heb. Chorem', חַרֵם consecrated [butfor-tress according to Furst]; Sept. ᾿Ωράμ [but most texts blend with preceding name into Μεγαλααρίμ,, or Μαγδαλιηωράμ], Vulg. Horemn), one of the "fenced cities" of Naphtali, mentioned between Migdal-el and BethAnath (Jos 19:38). Schwarz (Palest. p. 184) confounds it with the place preceding, and seeks to identify both in the modern village Medj el-Kerum, eight miles east of Akka; but this does not lie within the ancient limits of Naphtali (Keil, ad loc.). Van de Velde (1, 178, 9; Memoir, p. 322) suggests Hurah as the site of Horem. It is an ancient site, in the center of the country, half way between the Ras en- Nakhura and the lake Merom, on a tell at the southern end of the wady el- Ain, one of the natural features of the country. It is also in favor of this identification that Hurah is near Yarun, probably the representative of the ancient IRON, named with Horem. (Compare Seetzen, Reisen durch Syren, Berlin, 1854-9, 2, 130.)
