The Samaritan religion is based on four principles of faith, one God, the God of Israel; one Prophet, Moses Ben Amram; the Torah, the first five books of the Bible; and one holy place, Mt. Gerizim. The Samaritan community numbers about 740 people, half at Mt. Gerizin in the West Bank and the others in Holon near Tel Aviv.
