"At Va'Ani" (Hebrew script: את ואני, English translation: You And Me) was the Israeli entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1975, performed in Hebrew by Shlomo Artzi.

The song is a ballad, with Artzi comparing himself and his lover to "thunder and lightning" and other elemental things in order to demonstrate the strength of their love. He even goes as far as to say that the phrase "you and me" "sounds louder than the world".

The song was performed twelfth on the night (following Belgium's Ann Christy with "Gelukkig zijn" and preceding Turkey's Semiha Yanki with "Seninle Bir Dakika"). At the close of voting, it had received 40 points, placing 11th in a field of 19.

It was succeeded as Israeli representative at the 1976 Contest by Shokolad Menta Mastik with Emor Shalom.
