The first step in defining an input method is to come up with the
layouts of characters on keys of a QWERTY keyboard.  Are there
accepted standards for Syriac keyboards, and if so, could you show the
keyboard layouts?  If there are no accepted standards, could you
propose an arrangement that would make sense to users of the Syriac
script?  I see there are several Syriac keyboard layouts on the
Internet, perhaps we could use one of them?

The former is the Hebrew input methods, the latter is the support for
Hebrew language other than input methods.
