A Social Justice "Dayenu" for the Modern Era
The song "Dayenu," Hebrew for "It would've been enough," is a Passover staple, with 15 stanzas dedicated to God's gifts to the Jewish people. It goes:
If God had brought us out from Egypt but had not carried out judgments against them, dayenu, it would have been enough.
If Godhad carried out judgments against them but not against their idols, dayenu, it would have been enough.
If God had destroyed their idols but had not smitten their first-born, dayenu, it would have been enough...
...and so on.
But what about a "Dayenu" for the 21st century? This year, American Jewish World Service created a new video that offers a social justice twist on this traditional Passover song. What would you add to their modern-day list?
