About the Book
God didn't design the Seder to put your kids to sleep.
Instead, the Seder is an experience your family should love, treasure and remember.
Have you ever wondered that there might be something more to Passover, the Seder and in the Haggadah--something that just might hold the secrets to living the life of joy and meaning that you were intended to?
In The Telling, Mark Gerson, host of The Rabbi's Husband podcast and renowned Jewish philanthropist, shows us how to make the Seder the most engaging, inspiring, and important night of the Jewish year. By using this book, you'll be able to:
- Lead the Seder with wisdom, confidence and fun that guests will remember
- Make the Haggadah burst alive with insight for our opportunities, questions and challenges
- Show Gentile friends the richness of the Jewish tradition
- Instill a lasting love of Judaism within your children
- Bring your family closer together and closer to God
The Telling will enable you to see what the Haggadah really is: The Greatest Hits of Jewish Thought. This understanding will enable you to provide your guests with the most interesting, insightful and practically helpful night of the year--with teachings and lessons that will continue to brighten in the year to come.

Shipping and Handling
Media Mail is a cost-effective way to send non time sensitive media materials through the U.S. Postal Service. While the USPS estimates that Media Mail will arrive in 2 to 10 days we have seen some packages take much longer (the USPS says that this method can, at times, take up to two months to deliver). Media Mail items are not insured and are subject to postal inspection. The USPS retains the right to open and inspect your package to check for abuse of the system such as including an item not on their approved items list. Unfortunately, when a package is inspected, it is often poorly re-packaged before delivery to the customer. Clients who choose Media Mail as a low cost option will not be provided with a replacement book if their copy arrives damaged as this method is not insurable.
Priority Mail and UPS Ground while more expensive options, these methods deliver within 2 - 6 business days. If your order is time sensitive and you want to ensure your book arrives without damages, we recommend upgrading your shipping speed to either Priority Mail or UPS Ground. Both of these methods offer package delivery insurance and we will replace your copy if it was damaged in transit. That being said, if you have participated in a limited time signed copy promotion there are very limited copies available of extra signed copies. These replacements will be provided to customers on a first come first served basis and we may not be able to replace copies for all customers if there are multiple claims for damages in transit.
