In addition, civil marriage is banned in Israel, meaning that in the small number of cases where Jews and Arabs want to wed, they can do so only by leaving the country for a ceremony abroad.

Yet Mahdi’s relationship is also disapproved by many in the far-right political community that he associates himself with.
According to Michal, a supportive family – on both sides – has helped the couple maintain their relationship.
“My mom comes from a liberal rabbi background and studied at an interfaith seminary, but I don’t think [interfaith relationships] ever hit her quite so close to home,” she said.
“When [the far-right activists] knew that I am hanging with a Jewish girlfriend, they didn’t except that.
Not because I am Arab, but because it is not accepted in the Torah, and they don’t want her to be a Muslim,” stated Mahdi, who added that he and his girlfriend have been cursed by both “Jewish and Arab extremists.”Nevertheless, spending their first Valentine’s Day together in a state that sees their relationship as a threat to Jewish continuity, Mahdi is resolute in the future of his relationship.
