We are not available to receive the next moment. Our fantasies about the past and our desire to control the future cut us off from the wonders of this moment. They shut us in a prison of disappointment and suffering. Dayenu is a great liberator. It is a jolt into the presence of awe, compassion, attention, and freedom.
In the end, what Dayenu means to you and to those at your table ,is what matters most. My grandmother never stopped learning. She never stopped cooking.
It does not give us an excuse to stop learning, to stop improving. It does not mean that we should be satisfied with the current state of affairs. It is what she would want. And, in the words of the online Parnes Haggadah ,.
Surely no one of these would indeed have been enough for us. Dayenu means to celebrate each step toward freedom as if it. Dayenu means that if we reject each step because it is not the whole liberation, we will never be able to achieve the whole liberation. What more could we ask for!

Get off my back! Some are on the bus, some on a bike, some at Harvard and some at the school of hard knocks. Joshua Hammerman. Dayenu means to celebrate each step toward freedom as if it were enough, then to start out on the next step. Rabbi Hammerman was a winner of the Simon Rockower award, the highest honor in Jewish journalism, for his columns on the Bernard Madoff case, which appeared first on his blog and then were discussed widely in the media.
He has been featured as About. He is an active alum of Brown University, often conducting alumni interviews of prospective students.

Buy plenty of plain matzah: Egg matzah is fine to eat before the start of Passover and during the seder meal, but plain matzah must be the matzah of choice for all ceremonial ingestion. Make the best matzah balls: Far be it from me to tell you which kind of matzah balls are better, light-as-air or sinkers; usually, whatever Mama made is what you love.
If you like heavier matzah balls, just add more matzah meal to the mix and always allow the mixture to sit for 15 minutes or longer to absorb the moisture. The matzah balls are actually steaming in the pot, and if you open the lid, cold air comes in and the balls will immediately sink. Reuse your shank bone: I refreeze my roasted shank bone every year so I know I have it. Provide some seder nibbles: After you dip greens in salt water, you can nibble on foods before the meal begins.
Spruce up your gefilte fish: No time or inclination to make your own gefilte fish?
No problem. Empty the contents of jarred gefilte fish into a saucepan, then add some fresh onion and carrot and simmer for 20 minutes.
Take sides: Side dishes are up to you, but remember that quinoa is not a grain and is gluten-free, so all guests can partake. Hint: When you cook quinoa, put a cinnamon stick and a bay leaf in the water for a subtle but delicious addition. Instead of big cakes, make mini, muffin-sized treats. Have a fruit compote or cookies or fresh-cut fruit that your guest made…remember? I always follow this rule; the exception is my Linzer Torte.
