Salem


Salem
Salem place mentioned in Gen. xiv.18, from Heb. Shalem, usually said to be another word for Jerusalem and to mean "peace" (Cf. Heb. shalom, Arabic salaam). So common as a Baptist and Methodist meetinghouse name that by mid-19c. it (along with Bethel and Ebenezer) had come to be used in Britain generically to mean "non-conformist chapel."
