The process of making this broadside for me was very personal because the project was about a relationship that meant a lot to me. The problem of intermarriage in Israel involving Arab and Jewish couples is extremely prevalent in society, as well as in many other countries in the Middle East. I chose to incorporate both English, Arabic, and Hebrew in order to try and show that the three are intimately connected and need to be acknowledged in the state. The words in Hebrew translate to “we cannot be together, my love” and the Arabic print on top means “love”.
