Authorities Tuesday were trying to determine who scrawled antisemitic graffiti on the Hollywood Temple Beth El/Iranian-American Jewish Center in West Hollywood.

The vandalism was discovered about 8 a.m. Monday at the facility in the 1300 block of Crescent Heights Boulevard. The markings are believed to have been made some time between Friday and Monday morning, said Deputy Trina Schrader of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

No arrests have been reported.

In a Twitter posting Tuesday morning, West Hollywood Mayor Lindsey Horvath said: “This morning, I learned that vandalism w/a message of hate took place at #IAJC in @WeHoCity I condemn in the strongest terms acts of hate & antisemitism. There is no place for these kinds of attacks on members of our community or places of worship.”
