A Grey Lady Dayenu

It has been quite enough

From the 15th-century Washington Haggadah, with puppy.(NYT)

Had the New York Times merely published an article on Passover iPhone applications the same day Tablet Magazine did, it would have been enough.

Had the Times published an article on Passover apps the same day Tablet did, but not published an article on San Francisco’s Distillery No. 209’s kosher-for-Passover gin a day after Tablet did, it would have been enough.

Had the Times published an article on San Francisco’s Distillery No. 209’s kosher-for-Passover gin a day after Tablet did, but not published an article on the Washington Haggadah exhibit nearly a week after Tablet did, it would have been enough.

Had the Times published an article on the Washington Haggadah exhibit almost a week after Tablet did, but not published an article on the debate over whether quinoa is kosher for Passover several days after Tablet did, it would have been enough.

Anyway, the Times piece on the Washington Haggadah, by Edward Rothstein, is actually quite good—give it some of your time. But if you want a more original Haggadah, you might wish to try the version we put together last year with contributors as diffuse as writer Andre Aciman, boxer Dmitriy Salita, and the artist Andrea Dezsö. Our friends at Nextbook Press have posted an interesting excerpt from its latest book, Sacred Trash, about all the different Haggadot structures found among the papers in the Cairo Geniza. And you can find all of our Passover coverage—some of which covers topics the Times hasn’t even subsequently reported on!—at this one handy page.

Typical New York Times. They get ideas from smaller publications, rewrite the story, and don’t credit the original source. They’ve always done it.

Art imitating life. We all know you’re the Source. Keep up the great work.

May a ten plagues be visited on the Times and its little Pharaoh Arthur …Oh wait, I guess that has already happened….

Had the Times merely declined to publish Goldstone’s retraction, that would have been putzy enough. Had they merely run this odd piece http://www.nytimes.com/2011/04/20/world/middleeast/20goldstone.html?_r=1&partner=rss&emc=rss about the reasons, other than his having messed up when he wrote the report, why he was moved to issue the retraction which they declined to publish, that would have been more putzy still, and definitely putzy enough. But not only did they do all that, they also got both the crime Alfred Dreyfus was falsely convicted of, and his military affiliation, wrong. How unlike the cascade of _good_ things the original Dayenu celebrates.

Tablet is a Jewish ezine. The New York Times is not. Maybe my expectations for Tablet are too high. I expect Tablet to publish interesting Jewish stories before the New York Times.

Even if Tablet did not publish interesting Jewish stories before the New York Times, it would be enough.
