Farewell to the Director!

Nyhet Publicerad Ändrad

On Wednesday evening the Swedish Theological Institute and Bishop Munib Younan hosted the farewell party for the outgoing director Håkan Bengtsson in the presence of the former Archbishop of Church of Sweden, Anders Wejryd.

Håkan's greetings: 

After seven years in charge of the Swedish Theological Institute I am now leaving for Sweden where I will have duties both at Church of Sweden and eventually at Uppsala University. My term ends in December, however I will work from Sweden from now on. In the beginning of October, Mr. David Wass will begin his duty as the new manager of the institute.

I want to thank all of you who joined for the Wednesday reception and all of you who sent greetings and wishes. I felt proud and honored.

Thank you to all who worked with me for the Institute in different capacities!

I will miss you all and when it comes to Jerusalem, I will only be temporarily absent from time to time.

I wish our Jewish colleagues and friends a Happy New Year, Shana tova!

Håkan
