Haggadah Section: -- Cup #2 & Dayenu

The plagues and our subsequent redemption from Egypt are but one example of the care G-d has shown for us in our history. Had G-d but done any one of these kindnesses, it would have been enough – dayeinu.

Everyone sing together:

אלו הוציאנו ממצרים

Ilu hotzi'eynu mimitzrayim

If God had only brought us out of Egypt,
It would have been enough for us.

אלו נתן לנו את השבת

Ilu natan lanu et ha-shabbat

If God had only given us the Sabbath
It would have been enough for us

אלו נתן לנו את התורה

Ilu natan lanu et ha-torah

If God had only given us the Torah,
It would have been enough for us

Read together in English:

“Had God taken us out of Egypt...Day'aynoo!
It would have been enough! Had God carried us across the Sea... Day'aynoo!
It would have been enough! Had God cared for us for forty years... Day'aynoo! 
It would have been enough! Had God given us the Sabbath... Day'aynoo!
It would have been enough! Had God given us the Torah... Day'aynoo!
It would have been enough! Had God brought us back to the Land of Israel... Day'aynoo!
It would have been enough! Had God returned us to Jerusalem... Day'aynoo!
It would have been enough! Had God helped us redeem our brothers and sisters... Day'aynoo!  It would have been enough! “

In every generation, everyone is obligated to see themselves as though they personally left Egypt.

The seder reminds us that it was not only our ancestors whom God redeemed; God redeemed us too along with them. That’s why the Torah says “God brought us out from there in order to lead us to and give us the land promised to our ancestors.”
