Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is Jewish and recently wrote a viral post about how he and his non-Jewish wife Priscilla Chan remind their children of their Jewish heritage.

"For Shabbat (Sabbath) tonight, we gave Max a kiddush cup that has been in our family for almost 100 years," Zuckerberg wrote.

"Her great-great-grandfather Max got it after our family immigrated here and it has been passed down through our family ever since."

Zuckerberg also asked for forgiveness before the Yom Kippur, which he called "the holiest day of the year". In a post published write after the end of the fast, Zuckerberg wrote that "I ask forgiveness and I will try to be better. For the ways my work was used to divide people rather than bring us together, I ask forgiveness and I will work to do better. May we all be better in the year ahead, and may you all be inscribed in the book of life."
