Mor Shapiro is the wife of Ben Shapiro, one of the most famous public commentators and hosts in the media today. Aside from being Ben’s wife, Mor had also made a name for herself as a medical practitioner. She is now based in Los Angeles, California, USA.
Mrs. Shapiro’s family was originally from Israel and she was also born there. But they eventually emigrated to America when she was a child. Later on, when she was 12, her family settled in Sacramento, California.
While her husband is used to being center stage and in front of many people, Mor is the complete opposite. She is a reserved person who enjoys being out of the limelight rather than being exposed to the press or a huge crowd. This is not surprising since she is not involved on any social media platforms.
