Etham (Hebrew: אֵתָם)(Means "solid, enduring" in Hebrew.) was the second place at which the Israelites stopped during the Exodus. According to the Torah, Etham was on the edge of the wilderness (i.e. the edge of civilization). It has been suggested[who?] that Etham is another name for Khetam (fortress), located on the great wall of Egypt, which extended from the Mediterranean Sea to the Gulf of Suez. It may be close to the modern town of Ismaïlia.
