What better time of year to be happy? It's Hanukkah.
But what if something in your life is troubling you? Then act happy and you'll make everyone around you happy. And maybe some of that happiness will come back to you. After all, happiness is a moral obligation.
That's the case made forcefully by national talk show host Dennis Prager, in his book "Happiness is a Serious Problem," in his weekly radio "Happiness Hour" and in his 5-minute internet course on Happiness at Prager University.
Prager has created a series of five-minute courses on fundamentals of living that bring clarity to life. A firm belief in and understanding of Jewish values are the foundation of his mini-courses. He maintains that most liberal arts universities have neglected to teach these basic lessons and left thousands of students morally confused. Here is his 5-minute course on happiness as a moral obligation.
Dennis has a three hour daily talk show where he discusses "everything in life." In the New York-New Jersey area only the second and third hours are broadcast from 1 pm to 3 pm on AM 970 radio (The Apple.)
