In 2012, Taub revealed the possible split of the Jewish community on possible regional independence. This came a number of years after an influential student Union in Britain voted in favor of adopting a boycott of Israel.
In an interview with Jewish chronicle, Taub further stated that he was particularly concerned with the atmosphere in colleges and other tertiary institutions across the country.
As a result, he warned the administrators not to suppress the free expression of views even those in support of Israel in Universities.
To compound his personal commitment, Taub defiantly paid a visit to Bradford after the area was promptly declared an Israel free zone by a parliament representative, George Galloway.
Taub visited Bradford after he received invitations from the community. He courageously held several other meetings with faith leaders, councilors, and other authority groups in the city during his visit.
Daniel Taub clarified that he is not an ambassador to the community of Jews but St James Court. He, however, agrees that the Jewish community is important in his roles because of its involvement, passion, and concern.
