About The Samaritan Legend
The idea of establishing the
Association first started by a group of young Samaritan men and
women. Despite the importance of this communion religiously,
historically and socially as well as the nobility of their customs,
traditions and culture as one of the ancient and successive
civilizations on The Holy Land, it did not receive sufficient
attention from authors, researchers and many others. Therefore we
thought that it was our duty as people belonging to the Samaritan
sect that today represents the smallest, oldest and most prestigious
communion in the world, that lived and still live on the land of
Palestine, to represent it in a way that shows all its aspects and
related issues. Here came along the idea of establishing this
association with the aim of achieving many goals.
Message of the Samaritan Legend Association
Our message is clear in trying to
provide the truth about the Samaritan sect. We sincerely hope and
have great confidence that our association will gain the interest
and admiration of many in its attempt to provide informational
services in the future that will help in understanding the
traditions and customs of our people.
Objectives of the Association
1 - Providing information on the Samaritan sect and religion,
including their history, habits, traditions, religious rituals and
other related things.
2 - Expressing the Samaritan real identity, since there are still a
lot of people who believe that this sect is Jewish. This sect which is
represented by a minority of not more than730 people could, through
ages, preserve and maintain their own Samaritan identity as Israelis
not Jews. There are a lot of radical differences between Samaritans
and Jews that are obvious to any researcher.
3 -Being a bridge to world peace. We appeal for peace and hope it will
be achieved in the near future across all the Palestinian territories
to live in peace and harmony.
4 - Maintaining the heritage, culture and history of the Samaritan
5 - Popularizing the Samaritan culture and history to the world
through conferences, seminars and lectures.
6 - Putting an end to erroneous beliefs about the Samaritan sect as
being a Jewish community.
7 - Highlighting the Samaritan point of view of peace.
8 - Communicating with all segments of society.
9 - Helping young Samaritan people in their study and other things.

Site and the Excavations
Apollonia-Arsuf is located in the northwestern part of the modern city of
Herzliya on a kurkar (fossilized dune sandstone) ridge overlooking
the Mediterranean shore (Fig. 1). The site lies 17 km north of
Joppa and 34 km south of Caesarea. The ground of the eastern part of the
site rises 35 m above sea level, and from there gently slopes down to the
west, to about 20 m above sea level (Fig. 2).

According to Samaritan tradition, the office has existed continuously since
Aaron, the brother of Moses. This would not be accepted by all historians,
but the office may well go back to the Hellenistic period, which would still
make it the oldest office in the world. One account in Josephus suggest that
it is an offshoot of the Zadokite high priests in Jerusalem from around the
time of Alexander the Great. ... More: http://booksllc.net/?id=22266908
