The Samaritan Passover Sacrifice Ceremony
The Samaritans are an ethno-religious group who observe a unique version of the Torah. On Passover each Samaritan household acquires a one year old lamb, to be ritually sacrificed on Mount Gerizim (in the West Bank). I attended The Samaritan Passover Sacrifice Ceremony in April 2011.
