In western Bank, good Samaritans look for international brides

Samaritans, a historical, shrinking spiritual sect, are replenishing their ranks by scouting brides from Ukraine as well as other nations.

On a hilltop into the western Bank, a ocean of worshippers clad in white collect for an old, unknown Passover ceremony, chanting ritual prayers in Aramaic. Within their midst certainly are a smattering of newcomers: a high woman that is blonde a sharp suit and stiletto heels and a blue-eyed young woman whom speaks together with her animatedly in Russian, rocking her young daughter in a carriage.
