What's your point? That we aren't safe today? We're still safer than we ever were historically in the past 1900+ years.
I'm confused, you ask him what the point it... Then you go ahead and answer for him?

Maybe he has just another Regular answer.

The point is as follows:
Chazal taught us not to rub our menorahs in their faces as it sparks anti-Semitism. This was true then, and sadly it is even true today in this great safe country.

If the sickos are offended by a menorah it will not matter one way or the other.

Where do Chazal say that? We're supposed to be a light onto the nations by hiding in a closet?

Uch, so not worth getting baited. Waking through decidedly "yeshivish" neighborhoods and seeing menorahs in the windows is beautiful. No need to defend public menorah lightings that occur across the road from that.

Not sure what you're saying. If CBC wants to live his life like today in the USA is שעת הסכנה that's fine, but don't turn it into a Hashkafah.

So he should divorce his non-Jewish wife.
Why? Did he state what religion he is?

He just wants a holiday and to give his kids a gift. It's a cultural thing, not a religion.
LOL

I wonder what he means by very important.

He just wants a holiday and to give his kids a gift. It's a cultural thing, not a religion.

Then why would he say he's no longer an atheist? Lots of atheists give their kids x-mas presents but don't believe in anything x-tian.

I'm saying his "hashkafah" is not so much that it's שעת הסכנה as much as it is התנגדות.

I think it means hedging your bet.  :)

Zuckerberg, who was raised Jewish, has cultivated an interest in Buddhism through his wife and met the Pope last summer, did not elaborate on his beliefs and did not explicitly say if he subscribed to a specific movement.
