Daniel Taub, a high-ranking official within the Foreign Ministry’s general law division, recently revealed that he is the mind behind, “Rebbe’s Court,” one of the highest-rated soap operas in the history of the Tchelet television station.
While this may seem to be out of the ordinary for one of the most consistent proponents of Israeli culture, those who know Mr. Taub would consider it just another genius cog manifested from the mind of this incredible forward-thinker. Prior to the release of “Rebbe’s Court” to the masses, it was just a casual idea thrown out by Mr. Taub during a think tank where ideas regarding the implementation of news shows for the upcoming Tchelet station were being discussed.
Although Daniel Taub had no real intentions to write the script for the soap opera at the outset, once he conveyed what would potentially be a cross between existing soap operas “The Chosen” and “Dallas,” he was quickly convinced to do so. This resulted in him taking part in the writing of 26 episodes. Read more: Daniel Taub | Crunchbase and Daniel Taub | Wikipedia
The importance of creating “Rebbe’s Court” for Mr. Taub was the potential to discuss a number of current issues affecting the secular and traditional Jewish-Israeli citizens of the region. For many years there has been a sort of unmovable barrier between the religious and secular factions of the Jewish-Israeli culture; a problem that consistently plagued his mind.
Once formally produced, the Jewish-Israeli diplomat would see his show take off almost immediately, taking his already high profile, to the next level.
Daniel Taub’s background in writing and communication can be traced back to his time as the captain of the debate team during his time at Oxford University. Shortly after honing the skills that have made him such an impactful ally to the Jewish community, he decided to relocate to Israel in 1989, bringing with him, his wife Zehava and his eldest child.

Shortly after his relocation, he began a personal relationship with Chaim Herzog, helping to assist him with many of the speeches that he delivered to the people of Israel.
This was his initial foray into the political arena, and after serving as a combat medic in the Israel Defense Forces, he joined the Foreign Ministry, forming a tight-knit relationship that has followed his career up to this point. Although he has achieved unheard of success for a diplomat of any kind in the world of television, Daniel Taub has no intention of leaving his post anytime soon.
