Ahava Hi Shir Lishnayim (Hebrew script: אהבה היא שיר לשניים, listed phonetically as Ah-haa-vah Hee Shir Lish-naa-yim in the official Eurovision website, English translation: "Love Is A Song For Two") was the Israeli entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1977, performed in Hebrew by Ilanit.

The song is a love ballad, with Ilanit singing to her lover that "your song is my song" and explaining that their love is a true partnership.

The song was performed eleventh on the night (following Greece's Pascalis, Marianna, Robert & Bessy with "Mathima Solfège" and preceding Switzerland's Pepe Lienhard Band with "Swiss Lady"). At the close of voting, it had received 49 points, placing 11th in a field of 18.

It was succeeded as Israeli representative at the 1978 Contest by Izhar Cohen & The Alphabeta with "A-Ba-Ni-Bi".
