Ramla is located near Lod, near Rishon LeZion, 20 kilometers east of Tel Aviv.

Ramla is a mixed city with a Jewish and Arab population.

The name Ramla is translated from Arabic as "sand". This is the only city in Eretz-Israel, founded by the Arabs. It was built in 716 by the Caliph Sulayman, who was planning to move the capital from Lidda to Ramla.

The Crusaders turned Ramla into their fortress. In 1187 the city was captured by Salladin, then he again returned to the Crusaders.

In 1799, Napoleon's headquarters were located here.

About a third of the city's population are repatriates who came from the CIS countries in the 1990s.

Ramla has a technology college and a branch of the Bar-Ilan University.
