Members of the Samaritan community pray at sunrise during a religious service marking the end of their Passover holiday atop Mount Gerizim, above the West Bank city of Nablus, 02 May 2021. According to tradition, the Samaritans are descendants of the Jews who were not deported when the Assyrians conquered Israel in 722 BC. The small community numbers about 810 people, half of them live in a village at Mount Gerizim, near the Palestinian city of Nablus, and the rest in Holon near Tel Aviv in Israel.
