Degrading graffiti was found sprayed on the Jerusalem house of Women of the Wall member Peggy Cidor Monday morning after the group attempted to pray at the Western Wall, Israeli media reported.

The graffiti, reflective to that of ultra-Orthodox extremist group "Tag Mehir" (Price Tag), included remarks such as: "Women of the Wall are despicable," "Tag Torah," and "Peggy you are not relevant".

Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat condemned the act saying the slurs were an act of violence that must treated with legal severity.

Police were investigating the incident.
