Make a Dedication

Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
What did the Jews collect in the Etam Desert?
וַיִּסְעוּ֙ מִפְּנֵ֣י הַֽחִירֹ֔ת וַיַּֽעַבְר֥וּ בְתוֹךְ־הַיָּ֖ם הַמִּדְבָּ֑רָה וַיֵּ֨לְכ֜וּ דֶּ֣רֶךְ שְׁלֹ֤שֶׁת יָמִים֙ בְּמִדְבַּ֣ר אֵתָ֔ם וַֽיַּחֲנ֖וּ בְּמָרָֽה׃
They set out from Pene-hahirot and passed through the sea into the wilderness; and they made a three-days’ journey in the wilderness of Etam and encamped at Marah.
Midbar Etam: This was previously called Midbar Shur (Shemot 15: 22). So this verse probably refers to a specific area of Midbar Shur, somewhere near Etam.
The people collected onyx stones and pearls at the seashore.
