You may not have heard of Mor Toledano Shapiro, but she’s actually, conservative political pundit, Ben Shapiro’s wife. The 34-year-old editor-in-chief of The Daily Wire has often been a controversial figure. And this time, he’s taking aim at comedian Michelle Wolf.
Mor Shapiro, age 30, shares her husband’s views and has a career of her own. It’s hard to believe that no one has heard of her since she’s the wife of a famous political author and commentator. Then again, it all depends on your interests and political background.
You may not be familiar with her now, but after reading our Mor Shapiro wiki, your questions about her will be answered!
Mor Shapiro’s Early Life
According to her residency profile, Mor Shapiro, MD, was raised in Israel and later moved to Sacramento, California, at the age of 12. She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Los Angeles (UCLA), where she majored in psychobiology.
Shapiro loved learning about the relationship between the mind and body. This led her to two years of developmental neuroscience research at UCLA. Mor Shapiro holds an Israeli citizenship and is of Moroccan descent.
As for medical school, the 30-year-old graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles David Geffen School of Medicine. She has since had an interest in women’s health, behavioral health, and resident education.
Shapiro worked as a clinical skills instructor. She loved bioethics so much that it led her to speak at the DGSOM UCLA Ethics Symposium’s annual event.
FYI: She loves Game of Thrones, spending time with her family, and knows she can’t sing, despite the time she spent at her medical school’s A Capella group. That’s right—she’s also an avid singer!
Mor and Ben Shapiro’s Wedding
Mor and Ben Shapiro got married in July 2008 in Acre, Israel, while “overlooking the ocean sunset,” according to his blog post on Creators Syndicate. His father even wrote the processional music, which made everyone very emotional.
It was a traditional Jewish wedding. So, it included the glass being broken at the end of the couple’s vows, as well as traditional food and prayer.
Mor Shapiro’s Daughter & the Jimmy Kimmel Controversy
The Shapiros have two children; a son (born in 2016) and a daughter named Leeya Eliana. Ben Shapiro was so elated with the birth of Leeya (their first child) that he wrote an open letter to her and posted it on the Internet. He explained that Mor had been in labor for 26 hours and commented on how she endured it heroically.
He explained in the open letter to Leeya that he and Mor had prayed for her and revealed his hopes for her in the future, which included her path to choose God and follow His ways of righteousness.
But when Leeya was just a year old, she needed open heart surgery due to an atrial septal defect (ASD) and in 2015, she had to have open heart surgey. Her surgeon was the same one that operated on late night host Jimmy Kimmel’s son at L.A.’s Children’s Hospital.
However, Ben spoke on a podcast about the situation and brought up a few issues he had with Kimmel’s speech, basically tearing down the fact that Kimmel was championing Obamacare. Clearly, Ben Shapiro disagreed.
He said, “The problem with the argument that we have to cover pre-existing conditions, which is basically what Jimmy Kimmel is saying here, is number one, when it comes to children, it is the job of the parents to have health insurance when the kid is born, because the parents’ health insurance covers the kid, right? The fact is that my kid was not buying her own health insurance when she was a year and a half old, we had health insurance; it covered her.”
He went on to explain that he disagreed with Kimmel using a heartbreaking personal situation that in order to promulgate a public policy that actually doesn’t achieve what they’re seeking to achieve, is not worthwhile.
The argument, and his jab at Kimmel, certainly raised more than a few eyebrows and it sparked huge debates about the issues regarding Obamacare.
Mor Shapiro’s Income
Since Mor Shapiro is a doctor, it’s expected that she makes a decent amount of money that easily places her in the six-figure bracket.
Unfortunately, there’s no public information on her income, other than having access to her husband Ben Shapiro’s estimated net worth of $4.5 million. This isn’t uncommon since she’s not a public figure, so naturally she doesn’t broadcast her personal wealth.
Mor Shapiro Now
Currently, Mor Shapiro is still a practicing medical doctor and lives with her husband and children in Los Angeles.
Recently, her husband has commented on comedienne Michelle Wolf’s jokes at this year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner and how many of her jokes were distasteful.
Ben Shapiro has also written an op-ed on rapper Kanye West and is launching a Sunday Exclusive podcast series, starting with Jordan Peterson.
