My Israel in Ten Objects

Daniel TaubFilmed at Limmud Conference 2013

It seems like it used to be easier to convey a picture of the State of Israel. A single image  – immigrants arriving at a port in Haifa in 1948, paratroopers looking up at the Western Wall in 1967, commandos returning from rescuing the hostages from Entebbe in 1976 – seems to sum up an entire era. But how to portray a picture of Israel today?  Using 10 personal objects,  Ambassador Daniel Taub gives his own personal, funny and surprisingly moving portrait of contemporary Israel.

Daniel Taub currently serves as Director of Strategy and Planning for the Yad Hanadiv (Rothschild) Foundation in Israel. He served as Israel’s Ambassador to the Court of St James’s from 2011-2015, has represented Israel in peace negotiations with its neighbours, debates in the United Nations, and frequently in the media. He lectures and writes regularly on legal, Jewish and Middle Eastern issues, and wrote the popular Israeli drama series ‘The Rebbe’s Court’. He is a regular lecturer at Limmud, and as a student attended the first Limmud over 30 years ago.
