For decades, Jewish conservatives have wondered—and despaired—about why Jews are liberals even when liberal ideas seem to undermine Jewish interests and conflict with Jewish values. The time has come to make the positive case for why conservatism is good for the Jews, and why Jewish ideas are essential to the conservative renewal of America. Drawing on history, philosophy, and modern politics, veteran radio host and intellectual entrepreneur Dennis Prager makes the case for a new era of Jewish conservatism.
Dennis Prager is one of America’s most respected radio talk show hosts and the founder of Prager University, an institution spreading conservative ideas and values through short online courses delivered by some of America’s preeminent thinkers, scholars, and leaders. Mr. Prager has been broadcasting on radio in Los Angeles since 1982. His popular show became nationally syndicated in 1999 and airs live, Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM to Noon (Pacific Time) from his home station, KRLA. Widely sought after by television shows for his opinions, he’s appeared on Fox and Friends, Red Eye, Hardball, Hannity, CBS Evening News, The Today Show and many others.
Mr. Prager has written numerous books including The Nine Questions People Ask About Judaism (1986), the most widely used introduction to Judaism in the world. He has previously lectured on the Hebrew Bible at the American Jewish University. He writes a column appearing in newspapers nationally, as well as contributing to publications including Commentary, the Weekly Standard, and the Wall Street Journal. He has lectured on all seven continents, produced several films, and, among other honors, was appointed by President Ronald Regain to the U.S. Delegation to the Vienna Review Conference on the Helsinki Accords.
