Dennis first attended the Yeshiva of Flatbush private Jewish school in Midwood, which takes students between two and eighteen years of age. Prager subsequently graduated from Brooklyn College with a degree in Anthropology and History, went on to study at the Columbia University School of International and Public Affairs graduating in 1972, and finished at the University of Leeds in England, studying International History, Religion, and Arabic.

His first book, co-authored with his childhood friend, Joseph Telushkin, “The Nine Questions People Ask About Judaism”, was published in 1976, and became a best seller, and is used as an introductory text to Judaism to this day. He has since written “Why the Jews? The Reason for Anti-Semitism” in 1983, “Think a Second Time (44 Essays on 44 Subjects)”, “Happiness is a Serious Problem: A Human Nature Repair Manual”, “Still the Best Hope: Why the World Needs American Values to Triumph”, ”The Ten Commandments: Still the Best Moral Code”, and “The Ten Commandments: Still the Best Path to Follow”. Prager has written for film too, including the movie “For Goodness Sake III” in 1993, and for shorts including “For Goodness Sake II”, “For Goodness Sake”, “The American Trinity”, and “The Middle East Problem”. He also writes a regular syndicated column which appears in newspapers nationwide. This varied writing career has no doubt contributed significantly to his net worth.

In 1982, Prager began hosting a radio show for KABC, in Los Angeles, California, which centred on the topic of religion. He continues to broadcast to this day, currently on KRLA. He has also appeared on various television shows, including “Fox and Friends”, “Red Eye”, and “The Today Show”. He has lectured across the globe on the topic of religion, including in Russian and Hebrew.

In 2002, Prager made a documentary called “Israel in the Time of Terror”, which focussed on the daily lives of Israeli citizens, and the threat of terrorism that they face. In 2011, he founded the Prager University, an online-based study platform, with courses including Economics, Political Science, and History. It is unique in that all the lectures available are just five minutes long, intended as highly condensed, bitesize chunks of information.

In his personal life, Prager has married three times, firstly to Janet Prager (1981 – 1986) with whom he had a child, then to Francine Stone (1988 – 2005) – also a child – and finally to Susan Reed (2008). He is a vocal supporter of the Republican Party, though has criticised Donald Trump. He is musically talented, and has conducted classical orchestras for live audiences. He has been described by The Los Angeles Times as “an amazingly gifted man and moralist whose mission in life has been crystallized – ‘to get people obsessed with what is right and wrong”.
