Nazar Mahmud (Arabic: نزار محمود‎, Hebrew: נזאר מחמוד‎; born February 18, 1988 in the USSR) is an Israeli-Druze figure skater. His father is an Israeli-Druze from the Golan Heights, and his mother is a Ukrainian Christian. Mahmud was born while his family were living in the USSR. They moved to Israel soon after his birth. The movie The Syrian Bride is loosely based on their family.[citation needed] Mahmud is a three-season competitor on the Junior Grand Prix. He, along with younger brother Ruslan Mahmud, are the first Druze skaters to represent Israel internationally.[1] Mahmud is currently serving in the Israeli Army.[2]
