Cultural Differences

Medad has a photo of the posters being used to invite the public to the Shabbat Shuva sermons that will be delivered this week by the Chief Rabbis of Israel.

For reasons that aren't immediately clear, the Ashkenzai poster gives top billing to the Rabbi, whereas the Sephardi poster gives top billing to the sermon.

There are other interesting differences, but I think this one is the most significant. And though I don't think it really matters, I'm curious as to how it came about.
