Jewish Leadership Council Pays Tribute To Departing Ambassador H.E. Daniel Taub

The Jewish Leadership Council (JLC) today joined with other communal leaders in paying fulsome tribute to the outgoing Israel Ambassador to the Court of St James, H.E. Daniel Taub, who has announced that he is relinquishing his post and returning to Israel.

Sir Mick Davis, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the JLC, said;

Daniel Taub has been an exemplary and outstanding Ambassador of the State of Israel in the UK. In his four years in post, he has been an articulate, inspiring, passionate and balanced advocate for the State of Israel.  His collegiate, friendly and outgoing manner, together with his ready wit, deep learning ,  knowledge and empathy with the UK Jewish Community, has made him one of the best friends this community could have had as an Ambassador from Israel. His speeches and media comments were always measured, sensible and motivational.  The UK community will miss his deep care, his accessibility, and his ready smile at the numerous community events which he made it his business to attend. The UK community’s loss is the people of Israel’s gain. We wish him every success and he and his family only joy and happiness in the next stage of their lives.
