Syriac Church, if I'm not mistaken, uses a syriac translation of the Greek syriac rite liturgy originally translated from syriac but which was lost.They speak Aramaic and Arabic.Roman/Greek Antiochian Church uses Greek and Arabic.Coptic church uses Arabic and Coptic.All have certain "semitic" cultural practices. I suppose the syriacs are closer to Jews in the sense that they use two semitic languages?
As a Chalcedonian, I think the Antiochian Rum Orthodox Church would be the correct choice. But liturgically and culturally, I think the Syriac Orthodox Church might be closer to what you're looking for. I know an Israeli Orthodox Priest (an ethnic Ashkenazi Jew) who is based in Jerusalem and has created an interesting Hebraic chant based on Russian chant and Ashkenazi Jewish chant while doing the liturgy in Hebrew and Slavonic. He is under the Ukrainian Orthodox Church but keeps close ties with the Syriac church.

Yeah, if it's a pick between the Syriac and Antiochian Orthodox, the former are closer - the Antiochian Orthodox follow a rite 'finalized' in Constantinople after all :-).Isn't he under the Jerusalem Patriarchate? I wasn't aware of any Ukrainian Orthodox church (canonical or independent) having a presence in the Holy Land...
Also, which is closest to Jewish culture?(mods, please move if needed.)
