Passover 2012 / ‫פסח תשע"ב‬

The Passover Seder is the oldest surviving ritual in the Western world dating back some 3,300 years
to the last night the Jewish people were in Egypt before embarking towards the Land of Israel, Eretz
Yisrael. Since that time, Jewish families have gathered together to tell the miraculous story each Passover. There is nothing else quite like the Seder. On Seder night, every parent is a teacher. Grandparents
sit next to their grandchildren in order to pass down the traditions "from generation to generation."

Online from home!

It is therefore a special privilege for eTeacher to be able to present you this unique Haggadah to
make your Passover Seder even more meaningful. eTeacher is the premier online Hebrew language
academy and we have tried to create a Haggadah that shares the wisdom of the Hebrew language in
order to enrich your experience and make your Seder even more special. This Haggadah is of course
in Hebrew, but also contains a modern English translation along with a transliteration of key passages
to allow even those who don’t read Hebrew to follow along and pronounce the words properly in
order to read the Haggadah in its original language.

With Israel's best teachers!

We hope that you enjoy this Haggadah and on behalf of the eTeacher family, let me wish you and your
family a Chag Sameach,

Learn Hebrew from the convenience of your
own home. Enjoy all the benefits that remote
learning provides.

Israel's best teachers are waiting for you. Israel
is the home of the Hebrew language, and the
world's best Hebrew teachers.

Dayenu!
The Hebrew word ‘Dayenu’ loosely
means ‘It would have been enough for us to say
thanks.' Here is a modern twist on an ancient
song (feel free to add your own verses):
If we had returned to Israel after
two thousand years and had not
established the State of Israel – Dayenu!
If we had established the State of Israel and
had not made the desert bloom – Dayenu!
If we had made the desert bloom and had not absorbed millions of Jewish immigrants – Dayenu!
If we had absorbed millions of Jewish
immigrants
and
had
not
revived
the Hebrew language
– Dayenu!

Rabbi Akiva said:  How do we know that each
individual plague which the Holy One, blessed
be He, brought upon the Egyptians in Egypt
consisted of five plagues? For it is said:  "He
sent against them his fierce anger, fury, and
indignation, and trouble, a discharge of messengers of evil": "His fierce anger," is one; "fury,"
makes two; "indignation," makes three; "trouble," makes four; "discharge of messengers of
evil," makes five. Thus you must now say that in
Egypt they were struck by fifty plagues, and at
the sea they were stricken by two hundred and
fifty plagues.

If we had revived the Hebrew language and
had not developed innovative technologies
which benefit the entire world – Dayenu!

How many levels of favors has
the Omnipresent One bestowed
upon us!

Ilu hotzianu mimitzrayim, v'lo asah vahem sh'fatim,

DAYENU!

If He had brought us out from Egypt, and had not
carried out judgments against them. Dayenu!

Ilu vahem sh'fatim, v'lo asah veloheihem,

DAYENU!

If He had carried out judgments against
them, and not against their idols.
Dayenu!

Ilu asah veloheihem, v'lo harag et bechoreihem,

DAYENU!

If He had destroyed their idols, and had not smitten their firstborn sons.
Dayenu!

Ilu harag et bechoreihem, v'lo natan lanu et
mamonam,
DAYENU!

If He had smitten their firstborn sons,  and had
not given us their wealth.

Pass-Over
We don’t automatically recognize
the two words in "Passover" but the holiday
name is really a combination referring to
when God "passed over" the Jewish homes
before the Exodus from Egypt. The Hebrew
word is Pesach and is used not only in
Exodus (12:23) when God "passed over",
but in Isaiah (31:5) where God promises
to guard Jerusalem from all harm, "Like
flying birds, so will God protect Jerusalem,
protecting and rescuing, passing over
(pasoakh) and delivering."

their wealth, and split the sea for us, and took us
through it on dry land, and drowned our oppressors in it, and supplied our needs in the desert for
forty years, and fed us the manna, and gave us
the Shabbat, and brought us before Mount Sinai,
and gave us the Torah, and brought us into the
land of Israel and built for us the Chosen House
to atone for all our sins.

The Passover Lamb that our fathers ate during
the time of the Temple - for what reason did they
do so? Because the Omnipresent  passed over
our fathers' houses in Egypt, as it says, "You shall
say, It is a Passover-offering to the Lord, because
He passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt when He struck the Egyptians with
a plague, and He saved our houses. And the people bowed and prostrated themselves." (Ex. 12:27)

Raise the Matzah and say:

Magid - ‫מגיד‬

This Matzah that we eat for what reason?  Because the dough of our fathers did not have time
to become leavened before the King of the kings
