The Jewish Dimension of Refugee Resettlement: Welcoming and Integrating the Stranger

By Gloria S. Blumenthal

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), September 1998

Jewish tradition prescribes just, caring, and loving behavior toward the newcomer making the Jewish dimension of resettlement clear and complex at the same time. To treat newcomers as citizens means teaching them about their new homeland but to love them requires learning about them, their background and aspirations. They will need to change but so will we as we welcome them to be part of us. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.75 no.1, Fall 1998.
