the general Jewish public too much, you keep them to yourself, even if people know they differ. It s wiser to agree to disagree than than run about like a bull in a china shop.

Obviously, the Haredim of those times didn't attend services in their synagogues, but they understood when Jews are a minority, they have to cooperate. A rabbii that differs "too much", and publicly, causes dissention with the Jewish Community, and can cause misunderstandings between Jews and the non-Jewish majority. Invovative, and creative as he is, you have to know your limits. Apperently he has crossed some red lines. Too bad his hurbris go the better of him.
