Mount Grisim

Near Mount Gerizim in the village of Kiryat Luza live representatives of a small ethno-religious group of Samaritans, descendants of Assyrian settlers who mixed with the inhabitants of the Kingdom of Israel, conquered in 722-721 BC. e. Assyria. Today, Gerizim serves the same role for the Samaritans as the Temple Mount did for the Jews. The only difference is that the Samaritans do not mourn the destruction of the Temple (since they do not recognize its holiness), but, on the contrary, actively conduct ritual services on their sacred mountain, make Easter sacrifices, and the high priest blesses the people during three holidays - Passover, Sukkot and Shavuot.
