The acute housing shortage
and the problem of unem-
ployment in Israel, particu-
larly among the young, are
the two major factors con-
tributing to yerida (the

NEW YORK — A theory
that the Israelites' exodus
from Egypt occurred nearly
200 years earlier than prev-
iously assumed and that the
pursuing Egyptian army
drowned in a volcano-
produced tidal wave has
been vehemently disputed
by traditional archeologists
and biblical scholars.
The theory was an-
nounced last May by Dr.
Hans Goedicke, a professor
at John Hopkins Univer-
sity. It was criticized by
scholars in a recent issue of

Biblical Archeology Re-
view.
Dr. Goedicke derived his
hypothesis from a re-
interpretation of several ar-
cheological and historical
sources, including a loyal
decree by Hatshepsut, the
Pharaoh who ruled from
1490-1468 BCE. According
to Dr. Goedicke's transla-
tion, the decree includes a
reference to events includes
a reference to events similar
to the biblical account of the
Israelite migrantion from
Egypt.
If this date is correct,
Dr. Goedicke pointed out,
the exodus could have
coincided with the vol-
canic eruptions at Thea,
an Island north of Crete,
which were known to
have occurred at that
time. Seismologists claim
that a tidal wave set off
by an eruption could
have reached the shores
of Egypt and caused ex-
tensive costal flooding.
Critics have questioned
Dr. Goedicke's research
methods and conclusions,
and they have also ex-
pressed bewilderment as to
why someone of his reputa-
tion would advance such a
controversial theory based
on what they believed was
questionable evidence.
In the November-
December issue of Biblical
Archeology Review, Dr.
Eliezer D. Oren, an ar-
cheologist at Ben-Gurion
University in Israel, con-
tended that Dr. Goedicke
"does not subject either the
biblical narrative or the
secondary information to a
rigorous analysis." Instead,
Dr. Oren charged, Dr.
Goedicke "becomes
entangled in a fanciful
scenario totally divorced
from biblical, Egyptian or
archeological sources."

emigrated since 1948 and
settled mostly in North
America.
Shilansky said that dur-
ing the U.S. visit he will
meet with Israelis in Los
Angeles and Philadelphia,
in addition to meetings with
yordim in New York. He
said that he met with Is-
raelis in Manhattan, Brook-
lyn and Queens over the
weekend and that those
meetings made it clear to
him that many Israelis here
would like to return home.

tions he had with yordim
and that upon his return to
Israel he will prepare a con-
densed version of the tapes
and present it to Premier
Menahem Begin in order for
the premier to get first-
hand information about the
feelings of Israelis abroad.
Shilansky added, how-
ever, that in order to pre-
vent yerida it is important
to de-legitimize emigration
from Israel the way it used
to be after the state of Israel
was established.

He said that difficulties
in finding appropriate
housing and employment
in Israel are deterrents to
many who -wish to return.
But Shilansky said that
many Israelis whom he met
here are "frustrated." He
said in each meeting he had
with Israelis there were
those who "attacked Israel
and defamed it."
