Hor Haggidgad (Hebrew: חֹר הַגִּדְגָּד, Ḥōr Hag-Giḏgāḏ, 'cave of the Gidgad') is one of the stops of the Israelites on the Exodus journey. It is mentioned in Book of Numbers 33:32-33 as a place where the Israelites stopped during the Exodus, probably meaning 'cave of GidGad/GudGod'. [1] it is called Gudgodah in Deuteronomy 10:7.[2] Its location is uncertain but has been identified as possible near Wadi Hadahid[3] or Wadi Ghadhaghedh in the Eastern Sinai[4] although some see this as etymologically impossible.[5]
