The main SCOBA jurisdictions (in terms of people and presence) seem to be the Antiochians, the Greeks and the OCA.

Of these, which (in your opinion) is the most ethnic in the U.S. ?

Here are some questions relating to this:

1.  Ethnicity
--How much is the language of the old country used in liturgy, fellowship, elsewhere?
--How important is maintaining the culture of the old country?
--How much are the jurisdictions under the control or the “strong influence” of the leaders of the jurisdictions back in the home country?
--How much does maintaining ethnic language and tradition (small ‘t’)  improve the quality of living the Orthodox Tradition (big “T”) overall?
