Len was born in Brooklyn, and moved to Flushing at age 13.  Upon graduation from Dental School, he settled in Middletown and set up a dental practice.  Ingrid grew up in Brooklyn and was living in NYC working as an audit manager for the NYS Comptroller's Office when she met Len.  She moved to Orange County when they married.  They immediately joined Temple Sinai and became an active and integral part of the Jewish community.  Both their parents instilled a strong sense of tradition and Jewish community involvement.  They are proud that they have successfully transmitted that commitment and passion for Judiasm tp their son Brandon, who attended Solomon Schechter schools grades K-12.  Brandon, a graduate of Brown University, is a software engineer at Google in NYC.
Len has been a member of the Temple Sinai Board of Trustees almost upon joining the Temple.  He is currently serving his second tenure on the Executive Board.  He chairs the Ritual Committee, chaired the Rabbi Search Committee, and sits on the Chevrah Kadisha, Golf Committee, Cemetery Committee, and the Clergy Evaluation Committee. In addition, he serves as the Gabbai as needed.
Ingrid has also served on numerous committees at Temple Sinai, including the Torah Fund Chair, Chair for Pasta for Shul, Golf Committee, Mashgiach, and Trustee of MHA, the Temple's Nursery School.  She has received the Sisterhood Woman of Valor Award, and the TS President's Award and Hadassah's National Leadership Award.  In addition, she has served on the Orange County Jewish Federation Board of Trustees since 1995, and as Treasurer for most of that time.  
The Taubs have also been honored by the Jewish Federation of Orange County for their service to the Orange County Jewish Community, and by the ADL for their fundraising efforts.
