This article, originally presented as the Jewish lecture at the 44th International Conference for Dialogue between Jews, Christians and Muslims, explores the Jewish view on welcoming refugees and migrants anchored in an exploration of the communal narrative of the Jewish people from biblical times as well as in a reflection on the author's personal life story. It asks how our societies live up to the values of our faith tradition and explores examples of how Jewish communities are trying to positively address the challenges of global migration.
