Experienced finance executive Seth Taube has worked with notable investment firms across the country, including Tiger Management in New York and Medley Management in San Francisco. Outside of his work in portfolio management, Seth Taube is heavily involved in his family’s charitable organization, Taube Philanthropies, which grants funding through its two foundations, the Taube Foundation for Jewish Life and Culture and the Taube Family Foundation.

As part of its mission to support initiatives that promote public remembrance of Jewish victims during World War II, Taube Philanthropies awarded a $2-million dollar grant to the National WWII Museum in New Orleans. The aim of the initiative is to ensure that the lessons of collective and individual responsibility taught by the Holocaust are internalized by future generations, and that the plight of Jewish people during the genocide is never forgotten.
The grant will fund the Taube Family Holocaust Education Program, which will educate museum visitors through personal accounts, movies, speaker panels, and lectures. The education program will also have a distance learning component, designed for middle and high school students.
The program will be advised by a team of Holocaust experts, including academics and historians. The initiative launched on October 25th, 2018, with a public screening of Who Will Write Our History. This documentary details the work of historian Emanuel Ringelblum, who recorded first-hand accounts of the Jewish experience in 1940s Poland.
