The office of The Free Press, a media organization run by Jewish journalist Bari Weiss, was defaced with anti-Semitic graffiti this past week, Weiss announced on X/Twitter on Sunday afternoon.

Weiss, the founder and editor of The Free Press and former New York Times writer and opinion editor, is a vocal proponent of Israel in the media. Photos on social media show the walls of the companies’ offices defaced with the words “F—k Jews” and “F—k Israel.”

The Free Press has offices in New York City and Los Angeles. It was not immediately clear which location was attacked. “If the anti-Semites who did this think it will intimidate me and the journalists of @TheFP, they don’t know me, they don’t know us, and they have no idea what we stand for,” Weiss wrote on X/Twitter.

Instances of vandalism and intimidation against Jewish institutions have been widespread since Hamas’ attack against Israel on Oct. 7. Last week two Jewish primary schools in the Stamford Hill section of London were doused with red paint. Meanwhile, in Tunisia and a territory of Spain, synagogues were attacked.
