The Good Samaritan

The Samaritans have made the holy land their home for the thousands of years. But who are they and why is it that by leaving the Samaritans means you can never return?

Sofi Tsedaka thinks wistfully about the life and faith she left behind. Sofi is a well-known singer and TV personality in her native Israel, but what is less well known is that she is, or was, a Samaritan, synonymous in the bible with Christian charity and goodwill but in danger of dying out.

Lipika Pelham meets Sofi to find out more about the Samaritans who live divided in the ancient holy land.

Lipika will learn that because the Samaritans angered God they are still waiting for their ancient ark and other items of the tabernacle to be returned and that they may not be so good after all.
