Drawing on his vast knowledge, treasure of personal stories and experience, Rav Tauber electrified audiences around the world.
Rav Tauber was the driving force behind several institutions dedicated to the dissemination of Torah values and ideals. In 1979, Rav Tauber together with a group of lay leaders purchased land in Monsey, NY, to serve as the home of Yeshiva Ohr Somayach, just one of the institutions where his impact was felt.
