Show Notes

In today's episode Shira answers questions from Raziela and Emanuel from Coral Springs, FL: If the mitzva at the Seder is to tell the story of leaving Egypt, why do we spend so much time doing anything but tell the story? And why doesn't the story sound like a story?!

Shira talks to Rabbi Hanoch Teller and to Shira Lankin-Sheps, both EXPERT storytellers, to try and discover why we spend so much time doing other stuff at the Seder and why we don't just sit down to tell the story of when we left Egypt.

Rabbi Hanoch Teller has written dozens of books, told THOUSANDS of stories, and has taught all over the world. He has his own podcast, Teller From Jerusalem which is available now, so listen here.

Shira Lankin-Sheps is the founder of The Layers Project which tells the story of Jewish women, some happy, some sad, some exciting, some difficult. Shira's first book Layers: Personal Narratives of Struggle, Resilience, and Growth from Jewish Women is available from www.korenpub.com.

I've Got a Question is hosted by Shira Greenspan and produced by Aryeh Grossman, Dr. Daniel Rose, and Alex Drucker. The show is edited by Alex Drucker. I've Got a Question is part of the Koren Podcast Network, a division of Koren Publishers Jerusalem.
