Dayeinu: The Gratitude Attitude: The Haggadah in Depth, Part 20

We continue our attempt to decode dayainu and unlock the rhyme and reason of the rising scales that enumerate G-d’s favors. The focus is the second set of poetic verses, corresponding to our metamorphosing into a miraculous nation that consistently defies nature and statistics. A pattern of a gradually heightening awareness of Divine design in every aspect of our existence is also uncovered. Particular attention is lavished on G-d not only splitting the Red Sea, but also miraculously drying the ocean-bed, effectively sparing us a muddy walk. Yet, in the grander scheme of things, is that really such a big deal? The multiple answers proffered climax in a remarkably enlightening lesson.
Haggadah, Splitting of the Sea, Dayenu
