One of Israel's two chief rabbis paid a formal visit to Westminster's Hebrew Academy on Wednesday, a tribute, Orthodox rabbis say, to the growing strength of Orthodox Judaism in Orange County. Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu, the elected leader of Sephardic Jews in Israel, arrived in a Rolls-Royce and accompanied by a police escort. He spoke in Hebrew to the schoolchildren and blessed a new girl's high school campus before leaving for Los Angeles.

Rabbi Eliyahu Bakshi-Doron, chosen in February as one of Israel's two chief rabbis, spoke to students in grades six through eight at Emek Hebrew Academy, the oldest and largest Orthodox Jewish day school in the San Fernando Valley. Bakshi-Doron stopped at the school during the first day of his visit to Los Angeles.
