ZURICH (JTA) — Swiss officials said they have given up on finding those responsible for the 2001 shooting death of an Israeli rabbi.

Prosecutors said last Friday that they have run out of leads in the search for the killer of 71-year-old Abraham Greenbaum.

A father of 12 and the dean of a yeshiva in Bnei Brak, Greenbaum was visiting Zurich on a fund-raising mission when he was gunned down on the streets.

Jews and fascists square off in Budapest

BUDAPEST (JTA) — A Jewish group confronted fascist demonstrators in Budapest.

About 200 neo-Nazis gathered Saturday in front of the city's Parliament building to commemorate Nazi and Hungarian troops who defended Buda Castle against Soviet forces in February 1945.

They were countered by more than 1,000 participants of a demonstration organized by the Federation of Hungarian Jewish Communities.
