Daniel Taub, Bringing Home and Heritage Together

When he was first offered the job as the Ambassador to the Court of St. James, Daniel Taub had made a statement; it was not written though. The first meeting with the Queen of England took place in 2011. Learn more about Daniel Taub: http://www.parashadiplomatit.co.il/

As the Ambassador to England from his nation of Israel, Taub was very proud of his heritage. And with that in mind, the statement he made was a subtle one; he wore his kippah.

Daniel Taub was born and raised in England in the early 1960s. As a man with Jewish heritage, Taub was very proud of beliefs and practices. That is why about 30 years ago, he immigrated into Israel from England. It was a surprising move as he had been one of the more influential politicians in England up to that time. When he was anointed Ambassador to England, it was almost like a going home party.

That first meeting with the Queen in 2011 brought about a thought from Taub. The Queen had asked him how he felt about being back in his home country, and Taub replied that while he was grateful he could raise his children in Israel, he realized the opportunities provided to him by England and that he hoped to bring the two countries together.

And bring the two countries together, Taub certainly did. Regarded as one of the more popular Israelites in English history, Taub was able to bring the two countries together on numerous issues.

But the best part about the relationship was that, according to Taub, it was not a tug-of-war relationship where each side would pull one way on an issue while giving in another. Both sides genuinely wanted good change in the relationship and they achieved it.

One certainty out of the many years Taub worked as the Ambassador is that the Jewish community in England has seen a rise in pride. From humble beginnings, Taub has brought his home country and his native country to the forefront in European politics.

The relationship between the European power and the Jewish capital of the world are stronger than ever, and that is thanks to men like Daniel Taub.
