Taub studied literature at Oxford, international law at the College of London, and public administration at Harvard University. He now specializes in international law and counter-terrorism.

He is apart of the Israeli Philanthropic foundation; the foundation’s goal is it to educate, and contribute to the excellence of the Arab community. The foundation operates on behalf of the Rothschild family. Taub is also apart of Yad Hanadiv and serves as the Director of Strategy and Planning.
Yad Hanadiv is another one of the Rothschild family’s philanthropic foundations, they offer grants in four categories: environmental, academic excellence, Arab community, and education. Although, they will not respond to unsolicited applications for the grants they offer.

In 2012, many colleges in the U.K. began expressing anti-Isreal sentiment. Taub addressed the issue by saying he was “concerned” about the growing hostile environment toward those who support Isreal.
Although, the anti-Isreal sentiment didn’t stop at college campuses. Public officials, such as George Galloway, also voiced their anti-Isreal opinions. George Galloway went as far as declaring the British city of Bradford an “Isreal-free zone”, and labeled Isreal as an ” illegal, barbarous, savage state”.
Taub knew how false Galloway’s claims were. Shortly after Galloway made his statement the people of Bradford invited Taub to visit the city. His visit to Bradford was short and accompanied by a high level of security, but he quickly realized that Galloway’s views didn’t represent the community.
