Jeffrey Herbst, president of American Jewish University, said that anti-Semitic graffiti was discovered overnight at the university’s Bel Air campus.

“Last night, there was a disturbing act of vandalism just outside the gates of American Jewish University in which anti-Semitic graffiti was painted on our University sign and in other locations,” Herbst said in a Dec. 17 statement.

“The rise of anti-Semitism here in Los Angeles and across the country is deeply troubling – and must be confronted head on,” Herbst continued. “AJU’s security team is working closely with law enforcement to ensure the safety of our community. The University is  coming together with partners here in Los Angeles and around the country to stand against this hatred.”

This is a developing story. Check back for updates.

This article was updated on Dec. 17 to reflect that the graffiti was found outside AJU’s campus.
