Samaritans hold prayers at dawn on Mount Gerizim near the northern West Bank city of Nablus to mark the end of the Passover holiday. The Israeli Samaritan community which numbers about 720 people practice a religion that is based on four principles of faith, one God - the God of Israel; one Prophet - Moses Ben Amram; the belief in the Torah - the first five books of the Bible and one holy place - Mount Gerizim, close to Tel Aviv in Israel.
