One of the strongest voices in the fight against anti-Semitism is retiring.

Abraham Foxman says he will step down as National Director of the Anti-Defamation League next summer.

Foxman's retirement will mark the end of a 50-year career in Jewish communal service, 27 of them as leader of the ADL.

The 73-year-old is a Holocaust survivor who immigrated to the U.S as a child with his parents.

In a statement, he said he was proud of all that the ADL has accomplished during his career.

The ADL's succession committee will conduct a nationwide search for Foxman's replacement.
