She also studied Jewish history in Paris at the L'École des hautes études en sciences sociales. Dr. Tauber has taught in a variety of secondary school settings in the Jewish and general educational world, both in the United States and in Europe, and was the education director of Congregation Beit GIL in Geneva, Switzerland.

Dr. Tauber 's dissertation explored the role of the congregational rabbi as a teacher of adults, and she looks forward to integrating this research with her practical experience in the field of Jewish education. She is excited at the chance to guide and mentor JTS students on their paths toward becoming inspired and knowledgeable educators in the Jewish world.
