Ethiopian Orthodox Church
The Ethiopian Orthodox Church is in communion with the other Oriental Orthodox Churches. It is unique, however, in its observance of Jewish practices, e.g. the keeping of the Sabbath, circumcision, and the distinction of clean and unclean meats. The Church also claims a connection with biblical Israel through the Queen of Sheba. How these Jewish themes and legends in Ethiopian Christianity are to be explained is very obscure.
