Name: Dennis Mark Prager
Born: August 2, 1948
Occupation: Radio host, author, public speaker and filmmaker
Dennis Prager was born in New York City, New York on August 2, 1948. He is the son of Hilda Prager and Max Prager and he has two siblings, including Kenneth. Dennis was raised in a Modern Orthodox Jewish household.
Dennis studied anthropology and history at Brooklyn College. He also attended Middle East and Russian Institutes at the Columbia University School of International and Public Affairs. Dennis later studied comparative religion, Arabic and international history at the University of Leeds.
He has been married three times: Janice Adelstein, Francine Stone and Susan Reed (current). Dennis has two children, including David. The family presently resides in Los Angeles.
Instead of completing his master’s degree, Dennis co-authored a book with Joseph Telushkin that was an introduction to Judaism called “The Nine Questions People Ask About Judaism.” The book became an immediate bestseller, which prompted Dennis to publish several more books, like “Why the Jews?” “Still the Best Hope” and “The Ten Commandments: Still the Best Moral Code.” This helped Dennis become the director of the Brandeis-Bardin Institute.
By 1982, Dennis entered the radio industry, hosting a weekly religious talk show on KABC AM in Los Angeles. The success of the show led Dennis to serve as the Monday-to-Thursday talk show host for the radio station. During his tenure on radio, Dennis wrote a syndicated column and then launched a quarterly journal called Prager Perspectives.
Dennis decided to branch out in 1999, launching a website called Prager University. It’s an educational website that features five-minute videos on a wide range of subjects, ranging from climate change to Israel to the minimum wage from a conservative perspective. PragerU has become a popular channel on YouTube, but many of the videos have been censored as “restricted” by the website for reasons unknown.
It was announced in 2017 that Dennis and comedian Adam Carolla started to produce “No Safe Spaces,” a feature documentary about the rise of political correctness at universities.
Dennis has appeared all across the mainstream media landscape over the years, including on CNN and Fox News.
We estimate that Dennis Prager’s net worth is $5 million (2017).
So how much is $5 million really?
$5 million can help launch your own professional YouTube channel. $5 million can also contribute to a local synagogue.
