Skip to comments.A Dayenu for this Passover [Pres. Trump reference]
Posted on 04/17/2019 8:37:31 PM PDT by BTerclinger
At Passover, Jews sing this song Dayenu (It would have been enough):
"The song is about being grateful to God for all of the gifts He gave the Jewish people, such as taking them out of slavery, giving them the Torah and Shabbat, and had God only given one of the gifts, it would have still been enough.
This is to show much greater appreciation for all of them as a whole. The song appears in the haggadah (the Passover text followed during the Seder service/meal), after the telling of the story of the Exodus and just before the explanation of Passover...
So heres an updated Dayenu for this Passover (and no, its not implying that Pres. Trump is God):
If President Trump had only moved the US embassy to Jerusalem - Dayenu (It would have been enough)As the Israeli ambassador to the US, Ron Dermer said:
If President Trump had only recognized Israeli sovereignty over the Golan - Dayenu
If President Trump had only appointed Nikki Haley as Ambassador to the UN -Dayenu
If President Trump had only closed the PLO office in Washington DC- Dayenu
If President Trump had only stopped giving US tax dollars to the PLO - Dayenu
If President Trump had only been the first sitting US President to pray at the Western Wall -Dayenu
If President Trump had only cancelled the disastrous Obama Iran nuclear deal -Dayenu
If President Trump had only placed crushing sanctions on Iran -Dayenu
If President Trump had only insisted that the ICC not target Israeli soldiers and diplomats - Dayenu
If President Trump has only banned the BDS founder from entering the US - Dayenu
For all of these blessings, we thank President Trump- the most pro-Israel president in American history.
"It is true, as we say during the Passover seder, that "in every generation they rise up against us"
But it is a rare thing- a very rare thing- a president like President Trump and an administration like the Trump administration- it doesn't happen every generation. It may happen once in many, many generations."
Chag Kasher v' Sameach (Happy Kosher Holidays).
The Jews Choose Trump Team
Happy Passover, and best blessings also for our FRiends observing Easter.
Passover, Pres Trump and the Jews bump.
Nice. I imagine the song isn’t just about praising God, but is also done as a history lesson. A great idea to have a little history lesson on what President Trump has done (in two years!).
Hes done a lot for Jews and a lot against human trafficking. Dayenu!

jjotto just pointed me to an online source for this post:
Could I trouble you to edit my post and insert the URL?
Thanks for the ping.
Your link is live!
(as the case may be)
Very well done.
That is quite a list of accomplishments.
Well done by the author and very well done President Trump!
This is the most beautiful thing I have seen in a long time—the idea of even one blessing being enough, yet look how many we have.
I mailed this to my sister in another state. She responded very quickly with an email that just said: “Wow”.
A few minutes later she sent another email and said that she read it to her husband and it brought tears to her eyes.
No, we are not Jews. We are Christians who identify with the oppression that Jews have suffered. My Christian church held a Seder dinner last Sunday night where we sang Dayenu from a Haggadah.
Thanks for posting! And a Happy Easter and Joyous Passover to the site Admins. and all my FRiends here!! :)
“being grateful to God for all of the gifts He gave me”
To be grateful for any single gift of God easily becomes a child’s game of choosing up sides; “pick me-pick me”! Choosing up sides, I simply am grateful for Life - L’Chaim!
Will say a prayer for Israel at Easter Mass this Sunday.
A Blessed Passover to you, FRiend. Thank you for this wonderful “Dayenu”!
