10 rabbis throw their kippahs into ring in race for Israel's Chief Rabbinate
Rabbi Eliyahu remains in race despite attorney general's objections in light of racism allegations; final list includes six candidates for chief Sephardi rabbi and four for Ashkenazi post.
The number of candidates for the Chief Rabbinate rose to 10 Wednesday night, after rabbis Eliyahu Abergel and Ratzon Arusi threw their kippahs into the ring just before the candidate list closed.
