Dayeinu

  • Has there been a time in your life when someone has done a lot for you and you just want to tell them that it’s enough? Explain this time.

  • When is something enough?

If He had brought us out from Egypt, and had not carried out judgments against them Dayenu, it would have been enough for us!

If He had carried out judgments against them, and not against their idols, Dayenu!

If He had destroyed their idols, and had not smitten their first-born, Dayenu!

If He had smitten their first-born, and had not given us their wealth, Dayenu!

If He had given us their wealth, and had not split the sea for us, Dayenu!

If He had split the sea for us, and had not taken us through it on dry land, Dayenu!

...

If He had given us the Shabbat, and had not brought us before Mount Sinai, Dayenu!

If He had brought us before Mount Sinai, and had not given us the Torah, Dayenu!

If He had given us the Torah, and had not brought us into the land of Israel, Dayenu!

...

אִלּוּ הוֹצִיאָנוּ מִמִּצְרַיִם וְלֹא עָשָׂה בָהֶם שְׁפָטִים, דַּיֵּינוּ.

אִלּוּ עָשָׂה בָהֶם שְׁפָטִים, וְלֹא עָשָׂה בֵאלֹהֵיהֶם, דַּיֵּינוּ.

אִלּוּ עָשָׂה בֵאלֹהֵיהֶם, וְלֹא הָרַג אֶת בְּכוֹרֵיהֶם, דַּיֵּינוּ.

אִלּוּ הָרַג אֶת בְּכוֹרֵיהֶם וְלֹא נָתַן לָנוּ אֶת מָמוֹנָם, דַּיֵּינוּ.

אִלּוּ נָתַן לָנוּ אֶת מָמוֹנָם וְלֹא קָרַע לָנוּ אֶת הַיָּם, דַּיֵּינוּ.

אִלּוּ קָרַע לָנוּ אֶת הַיָּם וְלֹא הֶעֱבִירָנוּ בְתוֹכוֹ בֶּחָרָבָה, דַּיֵּינוּ.

אִלּוּ נָתַן לָנוּ אֶת הַשַׁבָּת, וְלֹא קֵרְבָנוּ לִפְנֵי הַר סִינַי, דַּיֵּינוּ.

אִלּוּ קֵרְבָנוּ לִפְנֵי הַר סִינַי, וְלֹא נָתַן לָנוּ אֶת הַתּוֹרָה, דַּיֵּינוּ.

אִלּוּ נָתַן לָנוּ אֶת הַתּוֹרָה וְלֹא הִכְנִיסָנוּ לְאֶרֶץ יִשְׂרָאֵל, דַּיֵינוּ.
