Samaritan village of Kyriat Luza. Nablus, West Bank, Palestinian territories.
On the first day of Sukkot religious feast and hollidays, Samaritans leave the synagogue to walk to the top of Mount Gerizim, their holy place. The mount Gerizim is sacred to the Samaritans who regard it, rather than Jerusalem's Temple Mount, as having been the location chosen by Yahweh for a holy temple, built in 330 B.C.) and is considered by them as the location of the Binding of Isaac. As the High-Priest is too old to reach the top, one of the Priests holds the Samaritan Torah during the march and the pray.
