Limmud exec Raymond Simonson will step down from his current position in October to become CEO of London's Jewish Community Center, it was announced Thursday.

"I am honored to have had this unique opportunity to serve the Limmud community," said Simonson .

Limmud, often said to be British Jewry's greatest export to the Jewish world, is an annual social and educational gathering. It has spread across the globe and is now held in dozens of countries from Argentina to China. Simonson is expected to be CEO of the London JCC when it opens at its new location in Hampstead in 2013.

Chair of the Limmud Executive Carolyn Bogush said Simonson “will be greatly missed."
