Daniel Taub was promoted to become the Ambassador of the State of Israel, and this gave him the chance to meet with the Queen of England. Daniel’s dress code made a full statement about his practices and beliefs.
Although Taub was born in Britain, he is an Orthodox Jew. He wore a head gear called the Kippah, striped trousers and the black morning tail coat. Daniel also wore black shoes that were mirror-shined and all that was the great attire for a Jew.
The Ambassador was born in 1962 and raised in Great Britain but left for Israel in 1989. He had to become a full citizen of Israel because Taub even joined the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). In IDF, he served as a combat medic.
The Ambassador has also held different diplomatic and legal posts as well as other positions such as the Israeli Foreign Ministry which was in 1991.The Queen too, knew that Taub had to trade his British citizenship and she had to ask how it felt having fate bring him back.

Back to represent a country he had already left a few decades earlier. Daniel Taub was, in fact, privileged to be given the position as an Ambassador because it would give him the opportunity to bring Israel and Britain together.
He loved both countries and was happy for the post as it would expose his children to both cultures and traditions.
Daniel held the position for four years that is from 2011 to 2015. The work he had done was felt by the Jewish people living in Britain; his mission to bring the two countries was certainly felt by many. Daniel Taub was branded as the best Ambassador than the ones before him, and it was sad to see his departure.
Daniel Taub fought effortlessly for the rights of Israelis in Britain. However, Taub explained that he was not assigned per say to the Anglo-Jewry but rather to the Court of St James’s.
He states that he is not the Jewish community Ambassador but the Jews as a whole are significant. The Jewish community, in turn, recognizes Taub as part of them and this earned a place for him and his wife in the community.
Daniel also says that he would miss all the work and events. In the office endless conversations took place, and Daniel found the British people good at listening.
Being an Orthodox Jew in London, Britain was not difficult because it opened new opportunities for him. Everyone Daniel Taub associated with including other Ambassadors respected him and his belief; this was a perfect time for Ambassador Taub.
