Sister Kasia Kowalska
Kasia Kowalska, Sister of Sion and PhD Candidate at Leo Baeck College and the Open University, became a part time lecturer at Bethlehem University (BU) in the Holy Land in November 2018. She taught a module called ‘Jewish Pilgrimage’ to a group of MA students in the Department of Tourism. In 1997, it was decided to open a course for the training of tour guides and this was one of the modules being taught. This year, 12 Palestinian, Christian and Muslim students are participating in the module. The course concentrates on the biblical and contemporary notion of Jewish pilgrimage in Israel and around the world.
