His career carried him through various positions in politics as well as legal and diplomatic aspects of international relations. He brings to the table a lot of experience, in particular, international law and counter-terrorism law as well as laws of war which to this day are still an essential part of international relations and diplomatic connections between different countries.
In 2011 Daniel Taub became the Ambassador to the United Kingdom, effectively almost poetically bringing him back to his first home. There was criticism at first because of his lack of seniority. However, his experience in the roles across the board changes people’s minds.
Daniel Taub also took it upon himself to educate the broader public about Israel and the culture it brings to other countries. He was able to encourage the Jewish community in the United Kingdom to become more visible and for British to accept them as a part of the society easier.
He worked with different Jewish centers around the country as well as tried to work on awareness about the situations back home. Before his time in the United Kingdom was over, Daniel Taub had the opportunity to meet Her Majesty the Queen and express his pride while also wearing his kippah to the evening.
Daniel colleagues praise him as tainted, smart and a charming person to spend time with even under the most amount of stress. Taub believes in the importance of his role as an Ambassador and never took it lightly.
