Religious teachings on welcoming the stranger
In honor of Pesach and Easter, here are some resources from religious teachings on how we can welcome the stranger: "For I was...a stranger and you welcomed me." (Matthew 25:35) "When a stranger resides with you in your land, you shall not wrong him. The stranger who resides with you shall be to you as one of your citizens; you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt. I am the Lord Your God."
