The Exodus (from Greek ἔξοδος, exodos, "going out") is the "charter myth" of Israel; its message is that Israel was delivered from slavery by Yahweh and therefore belongs to him through the covenant. It tells of the enslavement of the Israelites in Egypt following the death of Joseph, their departure under the leadership of Moses, the revelations at Sinai, and their wanderings in the wilderness up to the borders of Canaan.

You mean the "Exodus"? the ship that left Cyprus after the second world war with 611 Jews on board bound for Israel.
