You need to show proof of that statement. Yes, the Hebrew Children of were
mostly of the One God Elohim, but many, very man, had adopted the Egyptian
polygons. If, by saying the escapee’s from Egypt selected an alternate name
for their historical God then you are in error.

“And the children of Israel were fruitful, and increased abundantly, and
multiplied, and waxed exceeding mighty; and the land was filled with them.”
(Exo 1:7, KJV)
As you can see, they were all called the Children of Israel. Thus Israelite,
and in Exodus, as to Judges, there were Levites in the Land of Israel, They
migrated there with the other 11 tribes of Israel. And in the book of Judges
a son of a Levite was mentioned. And possibly more.

Judaism has laws and ordinances to follow, all of with the ancestors of the
ten northern tribes had signed on to. They were breaking their covenant to
the God of Israel.
