There's nothing quite like a rousing rendition of Dayenu at the Seder. But, how many of us have actually taken a serious look at the song? In this session, we will examine the literary and historical background of the song and discuss its beautiful message. Then, we will turn the tables by considering how the words of this song, so perfect for the Seder, actually reflect a dangerous approach to important questions of Jewish faith.
