Condolences to Dennis Prager

September 22, 2009

Our deepest condolences go out to Dennis Prager, who lost his mother, Hilda, this weekend. While he is observing the traditional days of mourning, he will not be hosting his radio show nor writing his column (which usually runs on Tuesdays).

Here’s the announcement from his website.

A Sad Announcement

Dennis’s mother, Hilda, passed away this weekend. Blessed with good health her entire life, she had been struggling with health issues for the past few months. Recently, things took a turn for the worse and the end came quickly.

Many of you might have heard the hour last year when Dennis interviewed his mother on her birthday. If you did, you know that she was a charming, vibrant woman who was very proud of her son. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

Dennis will be observing the traditional seven day Jewish mourning period. That means he won’t be on the air this week. When he returns a week from Tuesday, he’ll be full of thoughts about his mother, about life and death and, of course, about world events.

If you’d like to express your condolences, the best way is to email Dennis at For anyone who you might wish to send flowers, the family requests that you instead make a contribution to your favorite charity in the name of Hilda Prager.

If you wish, you may also send a note to Dennis’s father, Max, at his website here.

    I heard the interview Dennis had with his Mother, last year. I fell in love with her. She was the typical Mom and her conversation with Dennis was full of love, joy and humor.

    God bless her and the Prager family.
