    Traditionally people with Jewish connection try to avoid eating pork. This is just my observation.

    Agreed, but pork consumption among Syrian Christians has more to do with denominational allegiance than it does with being Jewish or non jewish. Catholics are known to indulge in pork and liquor to a greater degree than jacobite/orthodox, due to the influence of Europeans. Likewise when the mulanthuruthy synod was held, the jacobite patriarch reiterated that pork and wine should be avoided for feasts and anniversaries.
    Factors like social class and geography also play a part.

    Do any other Christian groups consume alcohol like Knanaya? Jews tend to drink too. Jews even encourage drinking and for Knanaya if you don't drink, you are not a man. Lol!

    Malayalis often tend to develop drinking habit due to peer pressure. Churches in Kerala officially do not promote drinking but it is more of a personal preference .
