Diplomatic representation is a critical aspect of international relations between two or more countries. The diplomatic corps is led by an Ambassador who is an appointed representative protecting the relationship between the nations but also protecting the interests of his or her home country.
Daniel Taub knows the job well since he served as Israel’s Ambassador to the United Kingdom from 2011 till the period of four years was over. However, his story did not begin in Israel but the United Kingdom.
Born in England and attending his first school in the country, Daniel Taub was later able to participate in several prestigious institutions including Oxford and Harvard where he received his degree.
After finishing university, Daniel Taub went back to Israel where he also got married and started a family. His career in international relations and diplomacy first began in the Israel Defence Forces where he was first a combat medic and later a reserve officer in the international branch of the corps.
His talent was noticed by colleagues, and after the service was over, Daniel Taub joined the Israeli Foreign Ministry team in various position as needed at the time. He has education and experience in a different aspect of foreign relations including the war of law, international law, terrorism, and anti-terrorism.
IN 2011 Daniel Taub was appointed to serve as an Ambassador to the Court of St. James, and he accepted the role. It gave him the opportunity to connect with his first home as well as see for himself how the Jewish communities were fairing in England and United Kingdom as a whole.
Daniel Taub always took his role as an Ambassador very seriously and took it upon himself to bring the communities out and make them more visible. He never shied away from educating others about Israel and its culture.
Before leaving the post, Daniel Taub was invited to see Her Majesty the Queen and the meeting went well. He believes that the conversation about the Israeli-Palestinian relationship is a significant one and that there needs to be more of it.
He also thinks that people don’t always know what to expect from their neighbors in Jewish communities or how to act around them. Therefore, education is one of the most important things.
Daniel Taub also wants people to stay connected with their home culture and their past as well as know their traditions since that is a direct connection to their land even if people don’t live in Israel.
