The flyers were found Monday morning on a printer at the University of Rochester’s Susan B. Anthony Institute for Gender, Sexuality and Women's Studies, the television station reported.

The incident occurred a week after a swastika was left inside an elevator at the university's Eastman School of Music campus, WHAM reported.

In a statement, University of Rochester spokeswoman Sara Miller condemned the flyers and their message.

"Anti-Semitic messages were faxed to a small number of University departments on Monday,” Miller wrote. “These messages are reprehensible and cowardly, and they are contrary to the University’s values. The University Department of Public Safety is working with law enforcement to actively investigate this incident."
