I know that the Ethiopian Church prohibits pork to be eaten, as well as certain laws on how to slaughter animals. Are there any others that I am unaware of? Did these come about because of the Jewish community within Ethiopia?

You can try to look for them in the Fetha Nagast, an Ethiopian collection of secular and ecclesiastical laws. The former used to be observed in the Ethiopian Empire (until Emperor Haile Selassie who issued a new law, based, however, on the FN), the latter are still observed in the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. The book can be ordered from Amazon.com (http://www.amazon.com/Fetha-Nagast-Kings-Haile-Sellasie/dp/0948390433). Large portions of it can be downloaded from EthiopianOrthodox.org (part 1: http://www.ethiopianorthodox.org/biography/01thelawofkings.pdf, part 2: http://www.ethiopianorthodox.org/biography/02thelawofkings.pdf).

Thanks.

If I run across any Messianic Jews looking into Orthodoxy, I can always refer them to the Ethiopian Orthodox Church.

At my university, there was a sizable Ethiopian Orthodox population. I always enjoyed chatting with them.
