A Samaritan man prepares a 'Sukka' made of various fruits in preparation for the Sukkot (the Tabernacles Feast) in Mount Gerizim near the northern West Bank city of Nablus. The Sukkot feast will start tomorrow at sundown to commemorate the exodus of Jews from Egypt some 3200 years ago. The Samaritan religion 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. The Samaritan community numbers about 720 people, half at Mount Gerizin in the West Bank and the others in Holon near Tel Aviv in Israel.
