Daniel Diker will be the next secretary general of the World Jewish Congress, the organization announced on Tuesday.

Diker, a noted foreign policy and media expert, will replace outgoing WJC Secretary General Michael Schneider who will step down after forty years of distinguished service in Jewish public life.

The formal transition will take place at the board meeting in June 2011 in Jerusalem.

Diker has served as WJC's Director for Strategic Affairs since May, 2010 and since early 2009 has served as WJC Middle East adviser on policy and diplomacy.

"Diker brings to the WJC a unique set of talents, skills and strengths that will help us achieve our goals of uniting, defending and strengthening our global community and constituency," WJC President Ronald S. Lauder said. "Dan brings great energy, vision and political will to help forge new directions for the WJC and help strengthen the bond of Jewish communities worldwide and fortify their relationship with the State of Israel."
