Jewish 100, 2014: Dennis Prager – Voices
Talk show host and columnist
Nationally-renowned as a radio talk show host and syndicated columnist, Dennis Prager advocates universal Jewish moral principles and the contribution of Jewish ethics to shaping civilization today. Defending Israel, and identifying the antisemitism that underlies so much of the disproportionate criticism which the Jewish state endures, remains a cornerstone of Prager’s work. “As hard as it is for modern, rational and irreligious people to accept, Israel’s Jewishness is a primary reason for the hatred of it,” Prager stated boldly in a column written at the height of the 2014 war in Gaza.
