Samaritanism is the Yahwistic religion practiced by the Samaritan people. Like Judaism, it claims to be descended from ancient Israelite religion. It is closely related to Judaism in that it accepts the Torah as its holy book, though there are differences in the version accepted. Samaritans consider Jewish thinkers after the Torah as having been led astray while they themselves stayed to the true religion. Their temple was at Mount Gerizim in Nablus, not Jerusalem. Very few followers remain today: about 705 living in Mount Gerizim and Holon.
