Reynold Levy, the president of Lincoln Center who is also a pillar of the Jewish philanthropic world, will step down at the end of the year.

Levy led a $1.2 billion physical transformation of Lincoln Center’s 16-acre campus, according to a press release from the center issued on Sept. 24th, which also said that under his leadership, the center raised $1.3 billion.

Levy assumed the post in 2002 and twice extended his Lincoln Center contract at the request of the board of trustees.
