Menachem Mendel Taub, known as The Kaliver Rebbe, is a prominent Hasidic rabbi who is the Rebbe (spiritual leader) of the Kaliver Chassidic movement. He was Seventh in a direct paternal line to the Founder of the Dynasty, Rabbi Yitzchak Izak of Kaliv, a Disciple of the Rebbe Reb Elimelech of Lizensk.


The Rebbe, a survivor of Auschwitz and the Warsaw Ghetto, has made it his life's mission to have Jews remember those who perished in the holocaust through the saying of the Shema Prayer at the end of every synagogue Service.

The Kaliv Institutions include Centers in Jerusalem, Bnei Brak, Tiberias, Rishon Letzion, and other locations throughout Israel.

The Rebbe is in the process of building the Ani Ma'amin Holocaust museum to showcase the faith of Orthodox Jews during the holocaust.

During his time at Auschwitz, Dr. Josef Mengele performed a series of tests on him which caused him not to be able to reproduce or grow a beard.
