One Response to “The mitzvah to remember the Exodus”

  1. Or he can say the “six remembrances” that are printed in the siddur after davening, which it’s good to say anyway.

    If I recall correctly – According to Rav Kanievsky, the mitzvah was fulfilled even without specific intent, since he did mention the Exodus. According to Rav Elyashiv, he would need to do something else (have in mind by Emes …. or say the six remembrances).
