Brandeis University has been investigating images from the school’s website being on an anti-Semitic website.

The university, located in the Boston suburb of Waltham, noted that, while the images are “obviously disturbing,” there is currently “no direct threat” to campus safety.

The photos, mocking the appearance of Jews, appeared on the white nationalist site Vanguard News Network Forum.

Founded in 1948, the university is named after Louis D. Brandeis, who was the first Jewish justice on the U.S. Supreme Court, and was founded in part due to discrimination Jews and other ethnic minorities faced in higher education at the time. According to Hillel, roughly one-third of the undergraduate student body is Jewish.
