R. Samuel Elijah Taub was born in Lublin, Poland on 9 February 1905. In 1935, R. Saul Jedidya Eliezer and his son R. Samuel went on a pilgrimage to the then British Mandate of Palestine. While they were there R. Samuel fell in love with the Land of Israel and asked his father if he could stay there. His father agreed and within a year R. Samuel's wife and their child came over to Israel. After his father's death in 1947 he succeeded his father as the Modzitzer Rebbe, to be known later as the Imrei Eish ("Words of Fire"). He continued the traditions of Modzitz both as a composer and Torah scholar. He died on 6 May 1984 (4 Iyar 5784), when he was succeeded by his only son, R. Israel Dan Taub. His teachings have been recently published in a sefer under the title Imrei Eish.
